EASY Valentine's Crafts for Toddlers


As a former preschool teacher, I love doing crafts as much as the next guy. But there is nothing worse than seeing a craft, thinking it is cute, and clicking on it only to find that it has 87 steps and most of them have nothing to do with your kids and everything to do with YOU. I don't know about you, but I don't have hours to prep crafts for my kids. It needs to be quick and dirty (and let's face it...crafts with toddlers are definitely dirty)! I've compiled a list of some of the easiest, most do-able Valentine crafts for you and your toddlers to do. Hopefully if you're looking for last minute craft ideas, this will be of great help! {Links go to full projects/tutorials}

Mosaic Heart {Fine Motor Practice}
This cute craft allows your kids to practice cutting with scissors, and gluing--both great practice of fine motor skills! 

Bumble Bee Valentine {Free Printable}
What could be easier than printing out a tutorial, cutting, gluing together and adding a couple of googly eyes?! 

Cardboard Heart Stamp
Paper, paint and a toilet paper roll...probably all things you have laying around at home!

Love Truck
This one might require buying a few supplies like heart stickers or candy hearts, but still a really simple activity! 

Love Bugs
Cute little heart shaped bugs...the possibilities for what to write on these are endless! 

Handprint Hearts
Who doesn't love hand print art?!

Heart Sponges
I'm sure most of us have a sponge buried somewhere under the sink, right? Put it to good use with this cute and easy craft! 

And just because this idea is too cute to not share {probably much more time consuming though...}
Valentine Heart Animals 

Which craft(s) are you planning on doing with your kiddos for Valentine's?
