5. Heart-melting activity – great sensory option for any age, just keep an eye on littles apt to pop these in their mouths!
6. Caution using this with a baby. My son has never been a very oral kid, so I wouldn't be worried, but use your best judgement! Valentine's Day slime.
8. Valentine's Day light table. Once you make this you can definitely re-use it for other sensory experiences!

11. Heart threading for toddlers. This blogger's post is actually full of fun activities I'll be trying with my 18 month old!

14. Toddler Valentine's soup! (not for eating …!)
Which of these are you excited to try with your little? Do you have any other fun ideas!
