What a great selection of activities – today we’re making Stained glass cookies I found them in my cookie book and thought they would be great I hadn’t realised that Outlaw Mom had done them before will be able to link through to her as the recipe looks slightly different.
Thank you for including ours as well
Those stained glass cookies look amazing! Mmm. I can’t wait to try them myself.
Lol I want 2 try them but I am on a diet
Fun! Thank you for all the great ideas!
I just love this holiday, Jessica. It’s way too much fun. Thanks for the nice comment 🙂
What a great idea and awesome list. 🙂 Thanks for the including me!
But of course, Jill! Thanks for writing such great stuff.
What a great collection of ideas. I need to make some Valentine playdough. The last batch we made was gingerbread for the holidays. Thanks for the inspiration.
We are in the same exact boat. Our playdough smells like pumpkin pie, so ours might predate your batch 🙂
What a fun list of Valentine ideas!! Thank you for incuding my ‘Magazine Tree of Hearts’
Love all the great Valentine ideas!! I needed some Valentine inspiration! Thanks for including our sensory bin!
Thank you! I scroll right down to treats first then slowly up with all the fun ideas. Going to try the stained glass cookies tomorrow. Much thanks!
Ha! Sheau — next time I’ll remember to move the treats to the top! Very funny.
What a great collection! Thank you for including our heart shaped owl valentine!
Hi Annette! You’re so welcome, and thank you for the nice comment. Happy Valentine’s Day.
This is such a fun round up of Valentine ideas. Thanks for including our heart shaped birdseed cakes. Have a lovely weekend!
Kelly — they’re way too cute. I’m a huge fan of working with natural materials and doing good for the environment, and I just love these.
Love this round-up! I am definitely trying the play-doh station AND the heart-toast idea! Genius!
I posted about these cute handmade Valentine’s Day cards my preschooler and I made together last year: http://www.multiplerealitiesblog.com/2013/01/hand-made-valentines-created-with-a-preschooler-toddler-art-valentines-day-craft.html
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
Hi Jennifer! Thanks for sharing your Valentine card post — how inspiring. I love how you made it so easy for your daughter to make so many all at once…without losing steam. Brilliant. And the washing station is a lovely, and smart, touch. Happy Valentine’s Day!
I really like those treats, those would make great activities for children during Valentine’s Day
