Toddlers get into everything, don’t they? So, let’s give their little hands something to do. Here are a couple of creative Valentine’s Day crafts for toddlers I’ll be making with my little girl this year. Not only will you have a fun craft at the end, but they are a great sensory activity for your little ones too.
First up: homemade playdough hearts. Not only is it fun for your toddler to get their hands into, but they can also pass them out to her friends during their next playdate.
Yes, that first part was more of a craft for mom or dad but now your toddler gets to have some fun!
After the playdough is done I roll it out and give my little girl heart-shaped cookie cutters. Depending on how old your little one is you might have to help them press it into the playdough, or they might be able to do it themselves! Either way, they will love smashing it into the playdough.
Once they are cut out I place the playdough hearts in cute, air-tight gift bags and let her hand out to her little friends.
My second favorite creative craft for toddlers is heart-shaped stamps. The great part about these stamps is they are free to make!
Set your toddler up with either white or even colored paper, and the stamp. Depending on the age of your toddler you may be able to dip the stamp for them or offer a little help. (Your floors may thank you.)
While it might seem simple, this craft allows little ones to improve their coordination. Plus, it’s just fun for them. And after your little one is done, frame it and give it to a grandparent. They are sure to love it.
I hope you and your little ones enjoy these creative Valentine’s Day crafts for toddlers. I know they will have fun and making them and will be able to brighten someone’s day when they give them away. And if you’re looking for more Valentine’s Day craft ideas, check out this board on Pinterest!
