I’ve compiled a list of our favorite Valentines Day activities that are toddler friendly. I have 3 things that I look for when I am scouring Pinterest for our next project. First, it has to be easy. I definitely don’t have time for a lot of prep work. Second, I prefer if it’s somewhat educational. Playing and learning is a double win! Lastly, it has to be inexpensive. I prefer it if I can find most things around the house so I don’t have to make multiple trips to Michaels. I do keep a craft box in the playroom with a few essentials we use all the time.
Take a look and try these favorites with your little ones.
1. This is an activity both can girls can do. We work on the fine motor skills for my little one while my big one practices her alphabet. Plus at the end you have a cute Valentines Day wreath you can gift to the grandparents or hang as decor
