Nothing makes a day more fun than making cute homemade crafts. What makes it even more meaningful? Making a paper craft for a holiday, like Valentine’s Day!
Preschoolers and toddlers love being creative and exploring with different textures, shapes, and ideas. It can be tough to find what to make, especially at a toddler level.
That’s why I put together a list of Valentine’s Day crafts for toddlers to enjoy these cute crafts and put a smile on your child’s face.
Easy Valentine Owl Craft from Journey to SAHM
There’s no cuter and more fun way to say you care about someone than these adorable Owl Card Crafts.
It comes with a free downloadable template (not even an email required!) and cut saying to write on the front of the owls to make this craft something your kids will adore.
Easy Photo Valentine Wreath Craft from Kids from Simple Every Day Mom
Valentine’s Day comes after the highly anticipated Christmas season. Toddlers and even preschoolers are still getting over the Christmas tree coming down and the fun the holiday season brought.
Here is a great way to make a Valentine’s Day ornament! The kids can hang their project wherever you please once done. Plus, they use those conversation hearts every gets, but no one eats.
Fruit Loops Heart Bird Feeder Ornaments from Natural Beach Living
This is such a great Valentine’s Day craft for toddlers that helps with fine motor skills. It takes focus to string cereal on pipe cleaners!
You can also use this as an educational opportunity to teach your preschoolers about birds and finding food in the winter.
Thumbprint Valentines from Long Wait for Isabella
I don’t know what it is, but toddlers LOVE finger painting. As they grow into preschoolers, it seems that doesn’t fade. We just don’t provide them the chances to still create homemade finger painting crafts!
This is a cute Valentine’s Day paper craft to allow expression and creativity. You can use markers or paint, depending what you have on hand and let them have at it.
The older the child, the more… detailed the picture will be. The younger the child, the more… “abstract” it will be (and there’s nothing wrong with that!). Your toddler will be so proud of the thumbprints they created no matter what it looks like.
Valentine’s Day Heart Purse from Sixth Bloom
Toddlers and preschoolers will have fun making this cute homemade purse. It’s a great heart shaped STEM activity that will make kids feel accomplished.
The best part is they can carry their project around after it’s done!
Heart Shaped Valentine’s Day Craft from Family Food and Travel
I love crafts that are designed for kids as young as 1 years old and all the way up through preschool and kindergarten. You give your child a heart and they get to decide what to make on it.
Let their imagination run wild!
Heart Stamping with Pudding Painting from A Cotton Kandi Life
Some toddlers have a knack for eating paint. I don’t know where they get it from. I mean it can’t taste good!
Thankfully this Valentine’s Day craft is perfect for them. Use a paper towel roll to create a heart shape and let them go at it!
If your child doesn’t eat paint, you can always use actual paint, but it’s not necessary here!
Heart Monster Valentine’s Day Craft from The Keele Deal
The perfect homemade paper craft for kids of any age. They can make a cute monster or a scary one depending on their personality. They can make just one or a dozen!
This Owl Craft is a Hoot from Mommy Moment
Made with paper and a toilet paper roll, this is such a cute homemade craft! You can make it Valentine’s Day colored as shown or spice it up and let your preschoolers make it their own.
Just keep the wings heart shaped for a Valentine’s Day feel.
