Fun-filled Heart Activities for Toddlers
If you’re ready for some fun heart-themed activities, here are a few ideas to get you started. Read on to see the complete list of heart activities for toddlers.
Create a bunch of different sized hearts out of paper or foam and let your toddler decorate them! This activity allows toddlers to practice their fine motor skills while exploring different shapes and colors. You can even write words or draw pictures on each heart that represent something special about your family.
Have your toddler create a heart-shaped collage with paper scraps, glitter, paint, markers, or any other materials you have lying around the house! This activity not only helps them learn about shapes and colors but also encourages creativity. Plus, you get a great keepsake out of it!
Hide small objects shaped like hearts around the house (or outside if weather permits) and have your toddler search for them! This activity is perfect for teaching object recognition while still having lots of fun. You can even hide small treats inside each one as an added incentive for finding all the hearts!
