7 Easy Valentine’s Day Crafts for Toddlers
I am so NOT crafty. That being said, I still like to celebrate holidays with my kids by doing a little art project. Itâ€™s fun to see them get into the spirit of whatever holiday is coming up and I love storing the crafts as keepsakes. Plus, I can always pawn them off as grandparent gifts, which really takes a load off.
Whenever I start searching for age-appropriate holiday crafts, most of what I come across looks like it was either done by one of Martha Stewartâ€™s design team or is about as age-appropriate for a 65-year old woman who taught Home Ec for 30 years.
Iâ€™m talking toddler crafts here! Itâ€™s got to be something really simple, not too messy, and doesnâ€™t require more than 5 mintues of my 2-year oldâ€™s attention. You know, a little glue, some markers, and maybe some glitter if Iâ€™m feeling crazy.
Valentineâ€™s Day is right around the corner and Iâ€™ve discovered some really cute and easy crafts that my toddler will actually be able to enjoy. Because last yearâ€™s diorama depicting the epic rainshower kissing scene from The Notebook didnâ€™t turn out so hot. Weâ€™re keeping it simple this time around.
