Preschoolers love creativity, so set up a crafting station with colored paper, glue, stickers, and glitter. Let the little ones create their heart masterpieces- a collage, a Valentine's Day card, or a simple handprint heart. This enhances their fine motor skills and allows them to express their creativity.
