February: the month of extended periods of cold, piles of snow, and hearts– lots of hearts. Now that January is over I feel an inch or two closer to spring. However, this month has been bitter cold and we have stayed home as much as we possibly can without going crazy.  We have finally jumped on the bandwagon and started enjoying Valentine themed activities to get through these long days. Here is a list of 10 awesome Valentine’s day activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers. My 4-year-old personally helped me select these and she is determined to do them all!
