    Silhouette Valentine Preschool Crafts

    These paper plate silhouettes are the perfect Valentine preschool crafts. If you choose just a basic heart, some preschoolers will be able to cut out the shape. However, you may choose to precut the silhouettes to simplify this craft. Placing the tissue squares is a great activity that most preschoolers will enjoy, even those with short attention spans. (Let's be serious, I haven't met a preschooler that didn't have a short attention span...but crafting can help improve that too) Save these Valentine Preschool Crafts for later.

    2 Rocking Birds Kids’ Crafts

    I was inspired by a project that I saw recently from Crafty Morning. Her sweet little love bird was so adorable, and my creative brain went into high gear. I wanted to take that cute little bird and kick it up a notch. Not only is it fun to make the craft, but it is even more fun if you can play with it afterward. Even better, if it can be used with other toys or made to be part of a story. With that in mind, I took that cute little love bird and made it into 2 rockin' chicks. This just required a couple of little tweeks, and (don't worry) I will hold your hand through the process. You will love these rocking birds kids crafts and want to make more.
