We love crafting for special occasions, and I have done this Valentine’s craft with my daughter since the age of around 8 months. It is something that is really easy for children of all ages, yet the finished effect is pretty impressive.

This has to be one of the most simple but effective Valentine’s crafts to do with younger children, perfect for babies and toddlers alike. It’s also a great for educational play, as it teaches hand to eye coordination.

To create your own Valentines picture / card with this design you will need:

  • Red Poster Paint
  • A toilet roll middle
  • Paper or Card

That’s it – three very simple requirements!

First simply pinch the top of one end of the toilet roll middle, in the centre to create a heart shape. This will then be used as a stamp.

Encourage your child to press the toilet roll middle into the red paint, and then stamp onto the paper or card.

Let them freestyle and create the design as they wish!

Perfect for that first Valentine’s Card for Daddy! 🙂
