Kid Business Ideas for Valentine’s Day

I know, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and there is barely time to implement these for yourselves. Still, if you wanted to pick one or two, you may be able to. At any rate, I’ll share what we’ve done in the past.

Kid Business: Wood Blocks for Valentine's Decor

Several years ago, my oldest two wanted to sell some things for Valentine’s Day, so we came up with some blocks for my son (then 8 or 9 I think) to make and my husband took them to work. What didn’t sell (the pink one), he gifted to me… and I love it!

Kid Business: LUV wood blocks for Valentine's Day Decor

This is just made out of some scrap blocks cut from 2x4s. They are different sizes because it’s what we had, but I like the way it turned out. He liked using the silver paint, but any color combo would work here.

Kid Business: XO Wood Block for Valentine's Day Decor

I love this pink one. He sanded it down and took more off the corners. Then he just decoupaged the card stock x and o onto the corner. If you have a Cricut, go for it, otherwise stickers or vinyl letters would work too. You could even add glitter paint to the end result, but we didn’t this time. I think it’s like 6 inches by 1.5 or so.

Kid Business: Red and White XOXO Wood Blocks for Valentine's Day Decor

Simple painted red and white blocks (any size would work). We didn’t have silver paper or stickers (though they would work), so he painted the card stock with silver acrylic paint, let it dry, and cut it with our Cricut.

Kid Business: I {heart} U Wood Block for Valentine's Day Decor

This one was the scariest. Though the block is just a scrap 6 or so inches of a 2×4, it’s the only piece that had handwriting on it. The heart was cut with our Cricut, but I had him practice the I and U on paper for a while before he did it. And honestly, I can’t remember if I ended up doing it or if he did it himself. Either way, it’s cute. 🙂

Kid Business: DIY Valentine Card Kids Can Make

After her experience with tags, my daughter (7 or 8) wanted to try Valentine cards. I helped her with the designs and was with her the whole time to help with placement when necessary, but she was able to glue everything on herself.

The little paper hearts were cut out with a heart punch my mom had. The flower petals were done with the Cricut. The envelope we folded and glued ourselves.

The children had fun, enhanced their skills, made a few dollars, and added to their experience in business. A win all around.

Do your kids make things to sell? I’d love to hear your ideas!

Gathering here.
