Valentine’s Day Photo Frame Craft for Preschoolers and Toddlers

When I think back to being a child in school, one of my most nostalgic memories is creating photo frame crafts. I had to bring back the photo frame craft this Valentine’s Day with this adorable craft for your preschoolers and toddlers.

I loved bringing home photo frames for the holidays and I remember my mom having a few hanging on the tree over the years. I don’t remember creating many for Valentine’s Day but I absolutely love the idea and I think you’re going to love this fun idea for celebrating Valentine’s Day without the candy and sugar.
