10 Valentine Photo Projects

I love Valentine's Day because there are so many fun crafts you can do in your classroom.  My kinders always love creating cards, pictures, and crafts for their parents and friends.  So I started scouring the web for some fun things that we could create using real photos!  Here are some of the cutest things I found.

How sweet is this book mark that uses photos of a child "signing" I love you!  This would be super simple to create and I bet the parents would love it.  (In the pic the little boy is pointing to his eye which just makes it even cuter!)  

Here's a neat idea that would be fun to create!  All you need is a heart shaped chocolate or candy and a photograph of your student holding out his/her hand.
<3 this idea from Smashed Peas and Carrots!

 Ok this one is just plain fun!  If you are making Valentine boxes as a class activity, then this one's for you. Blow up a photo of each child holding their mouth open wiiiiiiiiide.  Attach the photo to a box or bag and cut out a hole where their mouth is.  The end result is hilarious!
See how it's done over at Parent Hacks!

Have a chalkboard in your classroom?  Grab some chalk and get creative!  Here are some neat ways to create a photo backdrop for students to get in front of.  They make great photos and would be fun to send home as cards for parents!

How fun is this?  Students can make a bee and you can use their photo as the bee's head!  The little heart says "bee mine."  Would even look cute with the head a little bigger for a fun effect!

These Valentine boxes are so cute when you use student photos!  This is definitely one way to make sure no one's box gets lost, mixed up, or accidentally taken! LOL

For this one you'd just need a photo of your students appearing to hold something in the air.  Then have your students use construction paper to create the grass, sky, and a big heart on which they can write their own sweet message.
Such a fun idea from Teach Junkie!

If you're feeling really crafty, this salt dough frame would be cherished for years by your parents!  The handprint can be personalized for each child and the added photo just makes it that much more special!
This special keepsake can be found on Messy Little Monster!

If you've got conversation hearts left over from last year, here's a great way to get rid of them! :-)  Students will love creating this frame made entirely of heart candies!  Add a photo and you've got a great gift to send home!
Directions can be found at Simply Crafty!

Who doesn't love snow globes?  Grab a bottle or a baby food jar, add some water, red glitter, heart confetti, and a photo....and you've got yourself a fun gift!
