Have you seen those seek-n-find containers with hidden objects inside? You turn the container this way and that, hunting for tiny little items that are hidden inside.
Kids love hunting for the items. In fact, seek-n-finds are perfect for taking on car trips or to keep kids entertained while waiting at the doctor’s office.
February is the perfect time to make your very own DIY seek and find for Valentine’s Day.
It’s a simple Valentine’s Day craft and activity that little ones will love.
DIY Seek-n-Find for Valentine’s Day
Creating your own seek and find bag is super easy!
I used a zippered pencil bag I bought at the dollar store. You could also use a plastic zip lock bag and tape it securely onto a piece of cardboard so only one side is showing.
Next I selected several foam heart stickers we used in our Heart Sensory Bin. I secured the hearts to the side of the pencil case to serve as a guide of what to search for.
I found a set of matching hearts from and stuck them inside the bag.
Finally, I put several handfuls of artificial snow in the bag. Make sure it is not too full — you want to be able to shake the snow and find the hearts!
Tip: If you are worried that little ones may unzip the bag and make a mess, you can simple run a few stitches through the zipper pull or use some clear packing tape to keep them from opening the pencil case.
Once it’s complete you have a fun DIY seek-n-find for Valentine’s Day to take in the car, to doctor’s visits, or to church.
