I always have the best intentions when it comes to Valentine’s Day but we’re usually still recovering from the holidays that nothing but the easiest of V-day projects get done. This crazy cute paper cup kit from Darice makes the perfect easy, DIY Valentine gift for kids!
- Darice Assorted Animals Valentine Paper Cup Kit (makes 12)
- Darice Clear Treat Bags
- Darice Baker’s Twine
- Treats (candy, crayons, small toys, etc.)
Step 1. To create your DIY Valentine gift, assemble as many paper cup kits as you need. I loved that everything you need to create 12 adorable cups is inside of this kit, including the self-adhesive shapes. They were easy enough to make with my 4 and 7 year old boys and are going to be perfect for some classroom treats!
Step 2. Fill the small treat bags with any sort of candy or small toys you’d like! I love how the bright red Swedish Fish matched the cups. Of course you can use any treat you like. I even thought that some inexpensive crayons or miniature colored pencils would be fun too. Or if you have a little more in your budget, a small toy (like these Darice plastic dinosaurs!) would fit perfectly!
I wasn’t kidding when I said that this DIY Valentine gift was crazy easy. Pretty much just assemble and fill. That’s my kind of project! The fact that you can get small kids to help assemble these gifts only adds to the kit’s appeal. How sweet would it be for you and your family to work on some of these gifts to donate to the local children’s hospital? Since they’re so inexpensive and easy to make, you could easily donate at least a couple dozen!
Hope you guys enjoyed this super easy DIY Valentine gift project! I’m as much a fan of detailed and complex crafts as the next person but sometimes it’s nice to whip out a project in under 30 minutes.

Hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day!
