It’s Valentine craft time in Toddlerland! A little bit of glue, a dab of paint, crumpled tissue, a (giant) sprinkle of glitter, and ta-da: Jolie is making a loving masterpiece. Craft and art projects like this help the little Todderland tots develop pre-writing dexterity; here she is using a Q-Tip like a pencil. She’s practicing how to hold it, controlling movement using fine motor skills. Valentine’s Day is also a great opportunity to begin showing toddlers how they can express their love for friends and family. What fun!
