Crafts: Making Valentine’s Day cards with toddlers

This week I volunteered to run the crafts table at playgroup. It’s not something I’ve done before because the room is full of people much more creative than I could ever be. I figured we could make Valentine’s Day cards and that wouldn’t be too difficult.

I got my husband, who has a printers and stationers in Didsbury to cut and score some blank cards for us, and I cut out several hundred red and pink hearts. Throw in some glitter pens and some PVA glue and you have the ingredients for toddler fun.

Result! Just one of the beautiful works of art.

I really enjoyed making these Valentine’s Day cards with the children. I think they enjoyed it too, it’s always good to share the love, whatever age you are.

  1. This looks like a much more elegant version of what Baby A and I did today! It was PVA glue and glitter hell! But very good fun all the same 🙂 Lovely idea – reckon you’ll be asked to man the craft table again! X

    • Alas there were strong hints made about Mothers Day! The thing is it’s not about how great or perfect things are at this age, it’s all about having fun and learning, there was certainly lots of fun! xx

  2. Looks like great fun, love me a bit of crafty stuff 😉
