In this round up you’ll find lots of ideas for Valentines Day crafts that toddlers can make as well as some ideas for Valentines Day books to share together – perfect for cuddling up together on the sofa! Obviously there can be quite a difference in what a kid can make who has just turned one and what a kid who is about to turn three can do so do take a look through the list and see what ones you think would interest your child and suit their abilities – and of course the most important thing is to have some fun together!
You’ll find all of the crafts I’ve listed today in the same order that they appear in the collages below to make it a bit easier for you to find the ones you fancy the look of. There’s more ideas than are just shown in the collages though so do take a look through and find some new ideas to try out this year. Like these ideas? Make sure that you bookmark this page or pin an image so have all these ideas to hand when you need them.
