Crepe Paper Hearts

crepe paper hearts toddler valentines day craftWith Valentine’s Day not too far away I thought we would get a head start on some simple toddler Valentine’s day craft ideas. This fun activity is very simple requiring only crepe paper, glue and paper. Too easy! It was so simple that I left my husband in charge of this one and it still turned out well!

As simple as this activity is, it actually involves some great fine motor activities which are perfect for toddlers. Ripping, scrunching and gluing area all excellent fine motor activities. Don’t be tempted to jump in and do these things for them (except for the younger toddlers of course).

What you need


What to do

  1. Draw a heart shape on the white paper (I did this myself, but you could always print one up if  you prefer).
  2. Cut out the heart shape.
  3. Have your toddler rip pieces of crepe paper in red and white
