Hurray it’s nearly Valentines Day! Like most events I like to use Valentines Day as an excuse to do some crafting with my kids, but with them both still being small it can sometimes be a bit of a struggle, Pinterest has many gorgeous things but they’re not always achievable! With that in mind this week for Tuesday Tutorials I’m sharing some super easy and fun Valentines Day crafts for toddlers that were linked up last week.
We had lots of fun last week with my son’s friends making these cute valentine’s day crafts. Lots of glitter glue was involved which always seems to be a winner and sticking the hearts helped improve their fine motor skills while us mums attempted to drink tea while it was still hot! Each kid made their own valentine’s day wreath, two four year old boys and a two year old girl and I think they look pretty cool!
Last week we had friends round to visit for a playdate and I thought it might be nice to try and get all the kids to settle down and do some crafting. With two four year old boys and a two year old girl I needed something that could be made by everyone, especially as my daughter was having a teething day and had to be held by me at all times! These washi tape valentine cards were easy enough for all the kids to make and I thought they looked pretty cool too!
I’ve been wanting to make some clay heart ornaments with my son for ages so when we had a miserable grey day the other week I took this as my opportunity to make some! These would make great Valentines Day or Christmas ornaments or are just nice to have around the house because, hey, you all love each other!
The other day I was mentally berating myself a bit for not having made anything yet for Valentines day and I suddenly remembered, I have bunting! Go me! In fairness I made this a couple of years back, just before I started this blog and a very small, slightly dodgy picture of it made it’s way into one of my first ever posts about how to make super quick felt bunting, but I figure as that was nearly two years ago and basically only me and my mum saw the post, it might be ok to look at it again?! After all, it is nearly Valentines Day, who doesn’t want some quick Valentines bunting?!
