Toddler Valentine Crafts

Recently Carson and I worked on some crafts for Valentine's Day.  You know I love a good keepsake and it was also a great opportunity to make some cards for our loved ones!

Carson was also pretty excited.  He loves painting!


For this first project, I cut out a heart template and used painter's tape to secure it to a piece of red paper.  Then I let Carson go to town with white paint and a little sponge roller!  [Scroll down to see pictures of the process.]


Carson used a custom heart stamper to create this masterpiece.  We used these instructions to make our super fancy heart stamp from a recycled toilet paper roll!  :)

Here are some pictures of Carson creating his masterpieces.  (We used scrap paper to cut out the brown hearts which he decorated with Bingo markers for his grandmas!)










I'm linking up with Kristin today!

  1. Seriously, HOW do you get him to do these without it being a giant mess?! EVERY craft we've tried is just a disaster and ends up stressing me out way more than it is fun. Oye!

    1. Charlotte, It's HARD! That's why I keep him confined to the high chair for crafts. :) Usually he still makes a big mess but I always keep paper towels and baby wipes right there so I can wipe away messes as we work.
