Love Bug Valentine's Day Craft

My kids and I love making crafts for each holiday of the year. My daughter is especially excited for Valentine’s Day this year. My toddler son loves working with glue, so I came up with an adorable but easy love bug craft this year using foam hearts or construction paper hearts, craft sticks, pipe cleaners, felt hearts, jewel hearts, and other decorating materials. My son loved gluing all the small pieces on his love bug, and my daughter had a great time making hers as well.

Materials

Instructions

  1. If you are using construction paper, cut out medium-sized hearts.
  2. Color a craft stick with a marker.
  3. Glue the colored craft stick to a foam heart or construction paper heart with the bottom of the craft stick at the point of the heart.
  4. Cut a pipe cleaner to approximately 3 inches in length.
  5. Bend the pipe cleaner in half.
  6. Hot glue the bent pipe cleaner to the top of the craft stick.
  7. Decorate the heart with the felt hearts, foam hearts, jewel hearts, and other decorating materials.
  8. Display the love bugs for Valentine’s Day.
