Up at night with a newborn and up all day with a toddler is hindering my creativity for sure! I haven’t come up with a single Valentines Day activity on my own. So here are 3 quick and simple heart activities that I found on different blogs that we tried and LOVED!
Heart Hunt – Cut out a bunch of hearts, hide them around the house, and find them. I added a twist to this one and wrote names of our family and friends on the hearts. As B found them we read the names of people that love him. I wrote each name on two different hearts so we could match them after we found them all. The idea for a heart hunt came from Little Family Fun.
Heart Numbers – Write numbers on one side of the hearts and letters for your child’s name on the other. Have your child put the heart numbers in order. If they did it correctly, when they flip them over they will see their name. B really liked this activity and I liked how quick it was to put together. I read about this on The Shafer Family Blog (one of my favs).
