We have been celebrating Valentine’s Day with a lot of themed activities. A lot of these are fine motor focused due to a Montessori Challenge I have been doing on instagram (see here). I am now hooked on challenges. I’m finding them very inspiring and helps with planning new and exciting activities for my toddler. Here is some of our latest fun:
