With the toddler group, I prepared everything in advance bought a bag of ready cut foam hearts (they too were on sale at the end of Valentines Day last year) and let the mums and toddlers make them themselves. Some turned out with many many many hearts on them. Whereas others just liked to put one on and move onto the next activity.

Don’t forget to dig out your How The Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr Seuss Book and either head to the cinema or find the movie this Christmas.
