Three valentines for your favorites

What's the best way to make a valentine? Here's some crafts children can make both with the help of their parents, or by themselves, using our step-by-step photo guide

3 to 7 years

Valentine's Day is a special reason to tell your loved ones about how we love them. And for children, especially pre-school-aged children and schoolchildren, it's an opportunity for a first-ever, timid confession. While a child might not dare to say "I love you" yet, they can express how they feel with a card.

Wachanga offers three types of beautiful and one-of-a-kind valentines. Let your child choose the one they like most.

Give them with love!
