I put this super simple Valentine heart toddler activity together because my daughter loves gluing things together. So I went all crazy and cut out tons of hearts for this activity. I cut the construction paper into stripes and then folded them in a zig zag pattern and flattened them. I then cut out the hearts so it made like 6 at a time, super quick.

- construction paper – pink, red and another color
See I told you is was super simple. I traced a heart onto the construction paper in marker. My daughter at first glued on each indivual heart on the paper but then decided to place the glue on the paper first and then I told her to trace around the heart with the glue stick. She then proceeded to plop on the hearts like there was no tomorrow.
She didn’t really care to follow my heart pattern. My son, however, was very precise in his placement of the hearts and made them go upside down as the followed the outline.
We’re not big on Valentine’s day here but I do enjoy a good heart craft. I don’t love the commercialism of this day but I love all the pink, red, hearts and chocolate. Great time of the year for a chocolate pick me up.
