Valentine Crafts For Kids

If you have infants or toddlers, you know it can be a little tricky to make gifts, or craft projects that they can actually "do themselves". In my daycare, I have a 2 yr old and a 1 yr old. Here are a couple projects that they can pretty much make on their own..with a little supervision, of course. The first one is golf ball painting. I put a piece of construction paper into a box (you can cut it into a shape or leave it the size it is, you will want a box with high sides). Then add a little paint and a couple golf balls, you can also use marbles if you have them. Then have them tip and shake the box to roll the ball around to spread the paint on the paper.  When it's done, you have a cute gift or decoration that they made "all by themselves!"     
The second project I did with the 1 year old. I cut out a heart shape and taped it to the middle of a larger piece of paper. Then let them smear paint around all over the paper. When they are done, remove the shape in the middle...your infant just painted a masterpiece! Of course you can do these with kids of any age, but these are just a couple ideas that the "littles" can do that's simple and fun.
