Valentine’s Day is just around the corner – and what better way to tell someone you love them than with a home-made gift. Here are a few Valentines arts and crafts for toddlers you can work on with your little ones to give to their favourite friends, Mum, Dad, grandparents or whoever they wish to tell ‘I love you’…
Valentines Arts and Crafts for Toddlers – Hand Print Love Heart
Let’s start with the messiest of our Valentine’s arts and crafts for toddlers – the hand print love heart. Requiring nothing more than a little red and purple paint and some paper, these lovely prints will be exquisite fun for your little ones to create and make wonderful keepsakes recipients will treasure for many years to come. You can find detailed instructions on how to make them and many other, equally lovely Valentine’s gifts at the ActivityVillage.co.uk.
Valentines Arts and Crafts for Toddlers – Heart People
Less messy, but just as much fun to make (though probably requiring a little more help – especially when using scissors), the Heart People also need a little more in terms of supplies. A list of necessary items and instructions on how to make these cute little people can be found on the EastCoastMommyBlog, as can an array of other easy projects for Valentine’s Day.
Valentines Arts and Crafts for Toddlers – Mosaic Heart
Fantastic for first Valentine’s cards or as keepsake pictures, this delightful little Mosaic Heart is fun to create – and will also help your child to develop his/her fine motor skills. The necessary supply list and instructions for this project can be found at NoTimeForFlashcards.
Valentines Arts and Crafts for Toddlers – Butterfly Pencil Valentine
We particularly love this last idea, the Butterfly Pencil Valentine. Perfect for giving to friends at pre-school, these lovely little gifts take a little more time and effort – but it will be worth it. Instructions on how to make these gorgeous butterflies can be found at BuggyAndBuddy.com.
If you need to nip out for supplies, make sure your toddler is strapped safely in her/his booster seat. Joining others in a trip into town? Make sure your little one is safe even in someone else’s car with a BubbleBum inflatable car booster seat.
