This toddler-friendly Valentine’s Day craft really is easy enough to warrant zero tutorial for how to make it, but Beany had such a good time with her piles of pink hearts the other day, I thought I’d share our super simple project.
Basically, you just cut out a gazillion hearts of different sizes, supply your kiddo with some tape and crayons and then let them go to town.
The raccoon and cat required a bit more direction from me (though I bet 3- or 4-year-olds would have a pretty easy time with it), but the “heart with hearts,” as Beany calls it, was 100 percent her. She carefully colored and taped each of those things, and boy oh boy, was she proud.
We got a good half an hour of fun out of this, which for a toddler is pretty amazing. And I stuck a few pieces of magnet tape on the back of our creations once we were done, so now they’re living happily on the front of our refrigerator, where the tiny artiste can see her work on display any time she’s in the kitchen.
