I’ve shared some Valentine’s Day activities for preschoolers and some for toddlers before but today I thought I’d get a little bit more specific and share some Valentine crafts for 3 year olds.
Why three? Well because I wrote this originally when my daughter was three and even as a blogger myself I often find having a look through Pinterest that a lot of the stuff I see if super pretty but not quite suitable for her age.
To help both you and me I asked some of my favourite craft bloggers what Valentines Day crafts they’d done with three year olds (not just stuff that theoretically kids can do) and these are the ideas they suggested, hope you love them as much as I do!
Valentine Crafts for 3 Year Olds
There are loads of Valentine activities for 3 year olds in this post so I’ve shared each tutorial in the order they appear in the images in this post, although as you will see there’s quite a lot of extras too.
The first six craft ideas listed are from the collage at the top of this page while you’ll find the next ones under the collages.
Got a three year old? Make sure that you bookmark this page or pin it for later so when your child tells you they want to make something you can come back to this post straight away and have tons of ideas for fun valentine activities for 3 year olds you can do together.
