It being valentine day I chose 2 books that both me and the Princess could enjoy together. Princess is into board books and these 2 books could allow us to look at the pictures allow her to know how much I love her and we could both laugh , talk and giggle some more. Laughing has alot to do with our love for each other.
After reading together we could create some wonderful valentines like these.
Contact Paper Heart
•Clear contact paper
•Small pieces of paper, confetti, or tissue paper
Cut 2 identically sized pieces of contact paper Place paper, confetti, or tissue paper in a container Decide what the final shape of the project will be and get a pattern if needed Peel the back off of 1 piece of the contact paper
With your Toddler:
Place 1 piece of contact paper sticky side up in front of your toddler Allow toddler to stick paper, confetti, or tissue paper on the contact paper (without moving any of it!!) When he is finished, place the second piece of contact paper onto the first Trace (find a heart printable) or draw a heart shape onto the contact paper and cut it out
and always a favorite of my children was play dough. Here is a simple chocolate playdought that you can create and play with you lil sweetheart this valentine day:
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup salt
1/2 tablespoon cream of tartar
1 1/2 tablespoon cooking oil
1 cup boiling water
Stir ingredients together and mix well. Cook over low heat until dough forms a ball. When cool, mix with your hands. Store in airtight container. It will smell good enough to eat but without sugar in it kids will not want to taste it a second time!
