14 Valentine’s Day Crafts & Activities for Toddlers

I don’t know about you but I think toddlers are such difficult little creatures. With the attention span a fish and limited vocabulary you can see why sitting them down to create elaborate projects is a big no-no.

I know a lot of people are not big fans of Valentine’s Day, however I love holidays and it’s fun to come up with different activities to do.

I’ve scoured the internet for easy Valentine’s Day crafts and activities you can do with your toddler with the least amount of hair pulling involved. Most of these can be done with basic craft items that require little set up.

Costumes Done Right!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nickelodeon and Party City. All opinions are 100% mine.

With Halloween just around the corner, I wanted to be prepared ahead of time now that my son is a little older. I’ve never dressed my son up in any costumes!

I see kids running around in in different costumes all the time, regardless if it’s Halloween or not. Kids these days even have dress-up closets with different costumes to choose from. I’ve always thought those were the cutest things but never took it upon myself to try to get my son into dressing up.  Continue reading “Costumes Done Right!”

Happy Friday & 4th of July Weekend + Fruit Wands!

Hello Lovelies!

I hope you all had a great week and have something super planned for the 4th of July holiday weekend.

We’ve have now settled into my in-laws house for the time being.  Nico is having a blast hanging out with his grandparents daily. He especially enjoys when his two cousins Cam (a couple of months younger) and Hailey (a couple of months shy of 3) come over for play time.

Grandma & Grandpa are definitely happy to have all the kiddos around and mommy & daddy get a little break, okay, mommy gets a little break. LOL.

With the holiday weekend upon us I’ve been thinking about taking Nico to the beach and having him enjoy the 4th of July fireworks display. We haven’t decided if we’re taking the little one to see the fireworks show.

First, I don’t want to scare him with all the noise.  Although I’ve gotten him used to noisy things, I try to make a party about running the blender, the vacuum and anything noisy so he doesn’t scare easily, I think it has worked, but fireworks are a different story.

I’ve thought about letting him watch some YouTube videos with fireworks if maybe that will give him a better experience if we decide to take him.

Secondly, since it gets dark pretty late now, it will be past his bedtime.  He could be super cranky but nighttime and NO ONE will enjoy any fireworks.

I do think we’ll be having a simple & casual BBQ with the family to celebrate with lots of healthy snacks, especially a juicy watermelon, which I plan on cutting into little stars.  I found this easy DIY on Weelicious, they call them “Fruit Wands”, certainly better than what I would call them.

What are you doing with your family for the holiday? Got a any special activities planned? How did your children react to their first fireworks display? Let me know in the comments below.

Have a Happy 4th from our family to yours.
