Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!
Chocolate, Wine, Dates, Gifts, Hearts…that is what comes to mind when we talk about Valentine’s Day, right? V-Day isn’t always the celebration of romantic love though. Sometimes you celebrate the love that you have for your children…sometimes you celebrate your parents (and their love for you & each other)… Or maybe you are on a little homestead like me and you want to celebrate the animals that have become a part of your family. Why not spend this day/week/month of love on the homestead creating crafts and treats that can double as farm animal lessons for your kids??? You can move on to your date night later…Right now have a little fun creating some farm themed Valentine’s Day Crafts with your kiddos!
Farm Themed Valentine’s Day Crafts
V-Day Craft #1: Paper Plate Cow Craft

V-Day Craft #2: Hogs & Kisses Craft
Forget the hugs! Go for hogs and kisses instead this Valentine’s Day with this cute piggy handprint craft!
You can teach different pig breeds with this craft… Not all piggies are pink, you know?

V-Day Craft #3: Bird Seed Heart Treats
Make these treats in a heart shaped tray to show a little love to your birdie friends! Use this recipe if you are giving these treats to your backyard chickens.
Have fun bird watching with your kids after setting these treats out. What kinds of birds visit your yard? Discuss migration patterns, bird songs, etc. If you are giving the treats to your chickens then you can talk about chicken breeds or how chickens digest their food.
