Valentine's Day Activities for a Toddler

At a loss of ideas of what we could do today, I went in search of some fun activites to make the day seem special and keep our toddler occupied.

Of course, everything must be red, pink, or heart themed today!!!

We love crafts! Using the post below on Collages, we will do a few varieties today as well as any of the crafts we had mentioned previously but hadn't yet done. Even if it's just using red, pink, and white paints, crayons, markers, etc.

Great Printables at: http://www.dltk-holidays.com/valentines/index.htm

Balloon Fun:
Blow up some red and pink balloons. Perhaps give to the kids in a big gift bag and let them discover the contents. They'll have fun tossing and kicking around.

What can we do for our themed day?
* Sandwiches or Toast cut with heart cookie cutters
* Strawberries
* Apple Slices
* Raspberry Cheesecake stuffed French Toast (So Yummy! Mix some jam with cream cheese. Cut your bread slices in half and spread with cream cheese mixture. Dip in your French Toast egg mixture and cook as normal. Did I say how yummy it is??)
* Veggies & Dip (Mix a few drops of red food colouring into your ranch dip or homemade sour cream dip)
* Strawberry Milk
* Fruit Juice that's red
* Strawberry Cream Cheese on toast or bagels
* Tomato Soup
* Pasta with Marinara Sauce
* Smoothies
* Red Jello (could be made into jigglers, parfaits, etc)

Stained Glass Hearts - for cards or mobiles
