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.

Every year I make Valentine Love Fish with my preschoolers. It is simple, quick and so much fun.

Materials needed for this Valentines project are:

  • Red Construction Paper
  • Pink Construction Paper
  • Glue/Glue Stick
  • Wiggle Eye/Sick on Eye

Cut out one large red heart for the body. Cut out three smaller hearts for the fins. Cut out one tiny heart for the lips.
Assemble the hearts as shown in the picture.
Glue the eye on the side of the fish.

To use this as a Valentine card you could make it smaller and write a poem or message on the back.

Valentine’s Candy Bouquet

Everybody gives flowers so you need to give a Candy Bouquet!

Here is a Candy Bouquet that I created with Reese’s Cups, Snickers, Kit Kats and Mini-Reese’s Cups

My mom saw this idea at her local grocery store and almost bought one until she seen the price tag of $16. She knew that even a craft challenged person like me could make this and wanted to share. For a total of $4 , she created this cute gift that my dad will love on Valentine’s Day. That is if he doesn’t find it before, he has a habit of finding hidden chocolate.
