Building Hearts Activities for Engineering Play and Learn!
Building hearts for Valentine’s Day is a fun alternative to crafts! My little guy isn’t much into crafting, but he loves building! We did make one quick and easy, candy free Valentine card to hand out to his friends, but he loves our Valentine’s slime and Legos more! So if you don’t have kiddos interested in crafts, try some of these unique building hearts ideas.
