Valentines Day Love Bugs

Valentines Day Craft for Kids!

Valentines

Materials Needed:

  • 1 large red heart
  • 2 small black hearts
  • 1 chenille stick (pipe cleaner)
  • 2 small wiggle eyes
  • Small paper hearts for dots (I used a paper punch to punch out the hearts)

Directions:

With the large red heart upside down attach on black heart to the point of the red heart for the head. Attach the other black heart to the bottom for the “bottom”. Glue wiggle eyes on the head (top heart). Attach the chenille stick to the head (fold it in half making two sides). I used a hole punch to make two holes in the top of the head and strung the chenille stick through it taping it to the back to secure it. Twist each side into an antennae. Glue the small hearts on the body of the love bug.
