Toddler Valentine’s Craft: “I love you…this much!”

Love is in the air! It’s February finally..hasn’t January dragged on! We had a quiet month of crafting after December’s Christmas crafts galore. We have done some crafting but I haven’t got round to posting them yet. So here we are approaching Valentine’s day, and who else would a little girl make a Valentine’s present for other than her Daddy. It isn’t our smartest craft, but I think it’s the sweetest. Joe said it’s the nicest present he has ever received. Here’s how we did it:

Valentine's

What You Need:

  • 1x sheet of craft paper (any colour but we went for cream)
  • PVA glue
  • Black sharpie pen/felt tip
  • Glitter/Sequins/Sparkly stuff
  • Scissors

Step One:

Take the sheet of craft paper and ask your little one to place both their hands down on it. Draw around their hands (trying your best to get them to keep still! But don’t worry if it’s not neat as it won’t show later)

Step Two:

Once you’ve drawn round their hands it’s time to cut them out. Take one of the hand prints and write “I love you…” on it.

Step Three:

The fun part! On the underside of the hand you just wrote on, along with the other hand, get your little one to start decorating! We used sequins and glitter on ours. Seriously though a 2 year old and glitter.. I had to bath her afterwards as it just went everywhere! Pour the glue on to all areas of the hand except a space in the middle which I will come to later…

Step Four:

Whilst your little one is causing havoc decorating, take the remaining bit of card and cut out long strip. Fold it as below in a pleat so that it springs out when released. Write “This Much!” across it.

Step Five:

Glue the hands in the space we left earlier either side of the folded piece of craft paper and leave to dry!

There you have it! You could make it a lot neater than we did, but I like to let Lily have some fun when it comes to decorating!

<3 Happy Valentine’s Day! <3
