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.
