Welcome to Day 6 of Young Toddler Valentine’s Day Activities.
Day 6: Heart Containers
Young children love filling and dumping containers. So, when I found these cute heart containers at Target’s Dollar Spot, I knew exactly how I’d present them to J. I filled one with his favorite red gems and the other with heart shaped pasta. I put them on a cookie sheet (to contain everything) and let him explore.
J is getting better about not putting things in his mouth, but I still stay close because of choking hazards. If you’re worried about choking hazards, use a larger container (like an empty heart shaped chocolate box) and fill it with larger objects (like torn paper or blocks).
This was a fun Valentines Day activity for J and it kept his attention for a while! It’s simple, yet perfect for younger kids. Great for fine motor and problem solving skills.
