easy toddler valentines day card and craft ideas

I found this amazing DIY Valentine’s Day craft on one of my favourite blogger/Instgrammer’s website called, “The Alison Show“. Ready for it? Noodle necklaces!

After doing this little DIY, Hazel now has a love for painting. For my daughter who does not like crafts, I consider this project a win. She also looked super cute and I had to take a million pictures of her and her “Elsa” braid.
