Valentine Lanterns

Love is in the air and J has already asked C to be her valentine. I guess she was listening to the stories in our Valentine’s Preschool Lesson Plan recently. Today I am going to share with you another valentine preschool activity that we did.

Looking for a quick and easy valentine preschool craft? These valentine lanterns are a great valentine idea!

I have said it before and I will say it again, I am not a crafty mama and probably never will be. Our craft is simple and my kids loved it, so that’s a win all around.

What You Need


1. Ensure that the tea holder is nice and clean by either washing it or wiping it down with rubbing alcohol.

2. Give your preschooler the foam stickers and let them decorate 3/4 maximum of the tea light holder.

3. On the unused portion, grab your white paint and q-tips.

4. If your preschooler can write the first letter in their name, have them dip the q-tip in the paint and do so. They can either write it or do dots to form their initial.

This valentine's day craft for kids is just so cute and extremely easy.

And that’s it, I told you it was simple. Jael did one for herself and I did one for Caleb. She then placed her lantern in her room and C’s in his room.
