Here’s a fun activity for your littles on Valentine’s Day morning…
scavenger hunt slash Valentine’s Day decoration!
Ari is REALLY into “finding treasure”, secret clues, and going on a treasure hunt, (it’s really fun when he hides food…yikes) so I’m super excited for him to do this on Valentine’s Day! Make a scavenger hunt around your house with this free printable HERE and HERE. Just print on any paper, cut out, and hide the hearts all around the house!
You could even add toys or candies with the hearts.
When you’re done you can string the hearts up in a banner that reads “I LOVE YOU” for decoration.
Great practice for reading and letter recognition. Gotta sneak it in there somehow!
I actually got the concept of the heart scavenger hunt from Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood AKA the best show of all time (PBS kids). This show taught ME incredibly helpful ways to navigate through toddlerhood and taught ARI how to cope with change. Starting school, going to the doctor, help with transitions, potty training… there is literally a song for everything toddlers and parents experience. Plus, they don’t display negative behavior which is so rare in kids shows. I cannot say enough good things about this show!!
Hope your little explorers have fun with this!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
