We all have happy memories of the Valentine's Day celebrations of our childhood. Carefully selecting cards, cutting out paper hearts and, of course, eating our fair share of candy. (We think that the only people out there who enjoy eating those conversation hearts have to be under 10.) As we got older, the day lost some of the whimsy. But, we love to pass on our favorite crafts and traditions to the little ones in our lives. And that's what we're doing with this round-up of fun, kid-friendly DIYs. From love bugs to chocolate pencils, we have projects that'll enchant valentines both young and old.
