Toddler Valentine Crafts

Hi friends! Happy Valentines Week! Now that Hallie is in full blown toddler mode, I was anxious to try some crafts with her, and with Valentine's Day around the corner, I jumped on the opportunity for her to make some of her own Valentines! 

Finger painted Hearts:
This one was really fun! I just dropped some finger paint on a large piece of paper and let her go to town! Once she was done I let the papers dry, drew some hearts, cut them out and addressed them to some of Hal's favorite people! She had a blast!






Ms Elaine is a lady at our local grocery store that Hallie just LOVES!

Toilet Paper Heart Stamping-
This one might work better for an older toddler. I saved a toilet paper roll, taped it to the shape of a heart and gave Hal a little paint and showed her how to stamp the paper...unfortunately I am not sure she quite "got" it and smeared the paint around like she was finger painting again...it was short lived for us, but I can't wait to try it again when she is a bit older!



Shredded Paper Heart Mosaic-
 This one turned out pretty cute! I cut a heart out of cardboard and saved the scraps from making my homemade Valentines.  Then I showed Hal how to glue on the pieces! She especially loved all of the patterned pieces!










Have you done any Valentine crafts or made any homemade Valentines?

  1. I need to try the toilet paper heart with Mila. Although I think the results may end up similar to Hallie's, haha. Yesterday, I made a painter's tape heart and tried to have Mila paint around it so a white heart would be visible when she was done. She made two brush strokes and said, "Okay, I'm done!" Haha. I finished it for her. I love your scrapbook paper heart! Mila has been obsessed with glue sticks, so I might need to try that one!
