With Valentine's just around the corner, why not spread some love and try out our Valentine's crafts for babies?
Now we know that compared to toddlers, babies are very limited to what crafts they can do, so it goes without saying that all of the below will need quite a lot of help from yourself or another adult. But don't be deterred, getting babies involved with crafts from an early age helps them begin to identify shapes, colour and texture and helps to kickstart their fine motor skills.
Valentine's Fingerprint Canvas
All your baby will need to use for this craft is their fingers to create this canvas that any grandparent would be pleased to hang.
Clay foot print bowl
Baby's tiny feet sure don't stay small for long and this bowl will ensure you'll always remember how diddy they were. It can be used as a jewellery dish, key bowl or simply as a footprint keepsake ornament.
You'll need very little for these heart crafts which use tissue paper, watercolour paints and pom poms to create pretty pictures.
Berry much card
One you'll definitely need to assist with, we love how simple and effective this Valentine's card is, using your baby's little hand as the berry.
Cupid Arrow Heart Craft
How adorable are these Cupid arrows? They use minimal supplies and just require sticking together.
Easy heart Valentine card
Another simple card to help your baby with, you'll just need a cookie cutter, some paint and a card.
For something a little different, what about these thumbprint magnets? As well as sticking things to the fridge they can also be used as necklaces or keychains.
