I think this Valentine's Day kids painting project has been all over the internet this year, but I wanted to share our version of it.
This was probably a little too advanced for a 17 month old, but I'm trying to pass on my crafty genes to him. I used a toilet paper roll and shaped it into a heart. The rubber band around it that you can see in the photo helped keep it shaped perfectly. I got Connor undressed and he sat on Daddy's lap in the bathroom to do this craft. I think it's easiest to do painting right next to the bathtub so he can go right in and get washed off when we're done.
Instead of just using a plain piece of paper, I thought it would be fun to design a little Valentine with a cute message.
The end result was adorable and we passed them out to family over the weekend!
