I can't WAIT to try this one. It's a great way to repurpose/recycle materials (I'd totally keep and reuse the jar for this particular purpose). I'd also do this one for St. Patrick's Day after having the little man hunt for a "blarney stone" to use instead of the candy hearts. And, yes, I'd explain what the real blarney stone is. My maiden name is McCoy, after all. ;-)

Hey, look! More repurposing! Who knew newspaper could be so pretty?
There aren't any directions here, but it's pretty self-explanatory: felt arrowhead/tail + twig (or straw) = super cute Cupid's arrow. Maybe add some glue to the mix.
There are some other awesome ideas on this post particularly aligned to literacy and math skills, but the project I like is the squares-in-a-heart one. Great for fine motor skills and simple enough for kids to try on their own. Add that "I love you to pieces!" and you've got a sweet, adorable card.

We did this craft last year and it holds a special place in my heart (pun totally intended). I had or little guy do the painting and I cut them and assembled them since his skills were still minimal. We gave them along with a little candy and a card to grandparents and a beloved cousin. Add some string and you've got some fun decor, too.
How will your family be celebrating "Love Day"? Any super cute crafts in your futures? We'd love to hear!
