I love fun Valentine’s Day crafts for kids. There are so many options, and my girls love upcycling everything around them.

Typically, I use our toilet paper rolls to make fire starters, but we have more than I need, so we wanted to use them for something fun. These treat poppers were inspired by our New Year’s Eve Party Poppers.

Instead of confetti, you can fill them with candy, toys and other treats. This Valentine’s Day kids craft is simple enough for preschool aged kids, but can be fun for older kids too. Just tailor what you fill them with to the appropriate age level and everyone will be happy.

  • Toilet paper tubes
  • Baker’s twine - or ribbon
  • Valentine’s Day themed tissue paper
  • Heart stickers
  • Small party favors
  • Valentine's Day candy


  • School glue
  • Scissors
  • Tape


  • Fold the tissue paper in half lengthwise, then cut a piece that’s approximately 10-12" long. Place a toilet paper tube on top of the tissue paper and tape it into place. If you'll be gifting these Valentine's Day Treat Poppers to younger children, it can make it easier for them to "pop" them if you cut the toilet paper tube in half before covering it in tissue paper. See my New Year's Eve Party Poppers Tutorial for images on how to do this.
