I’ve shared some Valentine’s Day crafts for preschoolers and some for toddlers before but today I thought I’d get a little bit more specific and share some Valentines Day 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, so I asked some of my favourite craft blogger 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!
Valentines Day Crafts for 3 Year Olds
I’ve shared each craft in the order they appear in the post below, although as you will see there’s quite a lot of extras too! 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 activities you can do together.
