Valentine Cards to Make with Toddlers and Preschoolers
I’ve tried to split the ideas up into 2 different sections. The first set of cards to make with your toddler involves paint. These can get messy but that’s half the fun of crafting with toddlers. The next using glue to create collages fun and little bit less messy.
Toddler Valentine Card Crafts with Paint
This bubble wrap printed Valentine Card is easy to make with toddlers and if you want to give it a try with older kids then they can do the cutting out of the hearts. Head over now to discover how to make this simple card to send on Valentine’s Day with your toddlers.
Printing is always fun to do with kids and we love this Cardboard Tube Heart Printed Card to make with toddlers over on Creative Family Fun. We’ve always got a never ending supply of cardboard tubes so activities involving them are easy to do with our little ones.
Fingerprinting is great fun (you can use our edible finger paint recipe if your toddlers are still in the phase of everything goes in their mouths) and this Fingerprint Heart Photo Card over on Best Ideas for Kids is really great to make with your toddlers.
A quick suggestion though to make it more process art -> why not get them to decorate the paper with their thumbs first and then cut out the heart shape afterwards!

One last painted Valentine’s Card for toddlers. This Mono Print Card over on Non-Toy Gifts is really easy to make. Plus, no colour mixing needed so you can avoid the “preschool brown” that every time we painted my kids seemed to create.
