Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! The anticipation of sweet treats, heart shaped cards, and the excitement of spreading love to family and friends make this day so fun for kids! Before the big day gets here, let’s get them in the spirit of the holiday with a fun craft.
This Valentine’s season, invite your little ones to make this adorable Valentine name craft. A lovable bear is holding heart balloons that spell out your child’s name for a perfect blend of cuteness and festivity!
It’s a great craft for preschoolers to kindergarteners. Kids can either practice letter recognition and spelling their names with the letters on the balloons or practice handwriting by writing the letters in on each balloon to spell out their names.
