We love to celebrate holidays at our house, and having a curious preschooler makes it even more fun. Today I’m sharing the top ten preschool activities for Valentine’s Day I’ve found to help you celebrate love with your little ones. They are all super easy and give your kids room for creativity. Read on to find fun ideas to use at home with your preschooler.
Set up a Heart Creation Station like this one from Learn with Play at Home for an easy art activity. You could even use their creations for gifts for grandparents.
This Marbled Valentine’s Day Playdough from Fireflies and Mudpies is so pretty and easy to make, and perfect for sensory play.

Can we all agree that candy conversation hearts taste terrible? Ok, great. Let’s use them for this fun Candy Heart Fizzy Science Project from Preschool Inspirations instead of eating them.
M&Ms on the other hand… Practice Number Recognition with M&Ms using this fun activity from Umbrella Tree Cafe and then have a built in snack time (for mommy!).
Make a Heart Mailbox to share sweet notes with your kids using this idea from Toddler Approved (guest post on Red Ted Art).
