6 Easy Valentine’s Day Crafts for Toddlers

Kids, children, doing Valentine's day arts and crafts with hearts, pencils, paper

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Here are some really cute and easy Valentine’s Day crafts for toddlers that you’ll enjoy too.

I am so NOT crafty. That being said, I still like to celebrate holidays with my kids by doing a little art project. It’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 Stewart’s design team or is about as age-appropriate for a 65-year old woman who taught Home Ec for 30 years.

I’m talking toddler crafts here! It’s got to be something really simple, not too messy, and doesn’t require more than 5 minutes of my 2-year old’s attention. You know, a little glue, some markers, and maybe some glitter if I’m feeling crazy.

So without further adieu, here are some really cute and easy crafts that my toddler (and yours!) will actually be able to enjoy. Because last year’s diorama depicting the epic rainshower kissing scene from The Notebook didn’t turn out so hot. We’re keeping it simple this time around.
