I Spy DIY Valentine for Toddler and Kids

Here's another easy, cheap and 15 minutes or less DIY Valentine only this time it's for toddlers and kids.

One of our favorite books at bedtime right now is "I Spy A to Z" by Jean Marzollo. The pictures are ridiculously cute. Makes me want to create my own I Spy book out of Jake's toys.


Since Jake loves anything I Spy related, I thought a perfect Valentine for him would be a little I Spy Valentine bottle.

Here's what you need: Epsom salt (you could also use colored sand), plastic bottles (I got mine at Michael's), fun trinkets, ribbon and stickers to decorate.

3 Easy Steps:

1. Make a funnel out of a piece of paper and pour in the Epsom Salt. I didn't fill the bottle up the entire way so that some the trinkets could peek out.

2. Add your trinkets and treasures. I used some adhesive glitter shapes I found in the scrapbook section at Michael's along with some plastic letter beads.

3. Decorate with ribbon and stickers. As a safety precaution I also glued on the top.

An there you have it. Another mini-craft made at nap time!
