Creating Valentines with Toddlers
Valentines Day: Learning about Loving One Another
Valentines Day is a great opportunity to celebrate love and teach our children about God's love for them and others! It doesn't have to be solely about romantic relationships. You can teach your toddler Bible verses about love, and incorporate them into the valentines. You can create valentines from all sorts of materials, and give them to whoever you want! Spread the love far and wide! So, without further ado...here are a few ideas for creating valentines with your toddler to bless others!
Let Your Toddler Decorate Envelopes and Valentine's Day Cards
I bought a package of colorful envelopes a few months ago, for another project. Yesterday I took them out and let my toddler color all over them. I asked him who he would like to give each one to, and let him decide. So far he has chosen to make one for his grandpa and one for his great-grandmother. Once he colors the envelope, I write out the address on a sticky label and place it over the envelope. It only covers a little bit of the picture. I can't wait for the recipients to get their special Valentine's Day mail!
