Make Valentine’s Day special and educational for your toddlers and preschoolers with these Valentine’s Day fine motor activities! Kids will love them!
Valentine’s Day is all about hearts, love, and candy, if you’re a kid. While candy is nice, I don’t like just giving candy to my kids on Valentine’s Day. I like to celebrate the day in an educational way, too.
This Valentine’s Day, I’ll be trying some of these Valentine’s Day fine motor activities with my preschooler. She’ll have a blast, eat less candy, and learn something all at the same time.
That is the kind of fun hands-on education we like here at STEAMsational!
