7 Valentine's Day Crafts for Toddlers

Valentine's Day is one of those holidays that seems to sneak up on me in February since it is so early in the month. Last year we actually didn't do that many Valentine's Day crafts or activities because I focused my attention on a couples V-day party I was hosting.

This year I am excited to have more time to make valentines with my kids (last year we rushed and made them the night before) and do other Valentine's Day themed activities.

Today I thought I'd share a few of my favorite toddler Valentine's Day crafts that we've already done before I start posting about the new ones we've been doing.

Just click on the links below to find the full tutorial for each craft.

  1. I plan on making a simple video for Valentine's day. That would include some animations and how-to videos for arts and crafts. These candies look really nice, too!
