Traditional valentine's included locks of hair and lockets with photos. While we aren't chopping of our tresses any time soon, we do like the idea of our little ones having photos close to their heart.

This little craft project is perfect for kids to create for Valentine's Day. The paper heart locket is a great gift to make for a parent or grandparent.

We're crazy for crafting here at Momtrends. It's a great way to tap into the spirit of Valentine's where showing love doesn't mean spending a ton of money, it means getting personal.
