Hands On Activities for your Baby and Toddlers to enjoy and create for Valentine’s Day!
Babies love to explore! Let them explore the new things around your home for Valentine’s Day. The empty box of chocolate can be the newest toy that they love to open and shut and open and shut and hide their toys inside.
Heart Cookie Cutters
The heart cookie cutter you found on clearance after Valentine’s Day can become a manipulative toys that they love putting in and out of the metal bowl(our favorite toy at our house). Finding things around the house shaped like hearts and talking about them provides discovery and stimulation and vocabulary for your baby’s development. I hope to make a few heart photo blocks this week too, inspired from our Make Your Own Baby Blocks
Love Bug Footprint T-Shirt
We’re sent little Valentine’s off to Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles. We made little Valentine Butterflies by tracing my daughter’s foot. Then we attached heart doilies for the wings and eyes to the footprint. We attached this little Valentine phrase too. I love that both of my girls were able to do this craft together and send them off to family.
My First Valentine
Simple Valentine Idea just create a handprint on a heart doiley, great for siblings too!
Valentine Snack Time
We enjoyed our Heart Breadsticks from Little Hands That Cook with Books. If you haven’t checked it out you might want to for a little special snack for family or friends. My daughter loved the heart bread stick and they were super simple!
