This year we will actually have our Thursday toddler group on February 14th. Valentines Day is often in half term but not this year! So a special ‘keepsake craft’ is in order. Something special for parents and toddlers to make together, write the date on the back and keep.
Baker Ross sell card hearts that are perfect for making a heart wreath. The heart shapes are cut using paper punches – two different sizes. There will be wool and sequins too. The cut out hearts will be colour coordinated – lots of pinks, some green, patterns and bright yellow. The yellow brings the whole thing to life.
Valentine day craft.
Print a circle on to card for each child. Either cut them out for the children or let older children do that for themselves.
Print red and white hearts and again either cut them out for the children or let them do that themselves. They could add the names of family members to the hearts.
The ribbon can either be the verse from 1 John or blank for the child’s name. The children could colour this.
Let the children arrange the ribbon and hearts as they wish and then they can stick them down with glue.
I’ve included Pdf files of the templates.
