Valentine’s Day Heart Butterfly Craft

Valentine's Day Heart Butterfly Craft

My kids and I have been hard at work the past few weeks crafting homemade decorations and gifts for Valentine’s Day. One craft that my daughter really enjoyed making was a heart butterfly because she got to practice her burgeoning cutting skills.

Materials

Instructions

  1. Cut two large hearts, one small heart, and two tiny hearts from one color of paper.
  2. Cut two medium hearts from another color of paper.
  3. Cut six small hearts from another color of paper.
  4. Glue the small hearts on the medium hearts.
  5. Glue the medium hearts on the large hearts.
  6. Glue the larges hearts to the back of a small heart with the points on the inside.
  7. Glue the five remaining small hearts on a full sheet of paper in a vertical stack starting with the heart with the large hearts second to the top and the heart of a different color on the top.
  8. Use the black marker to draw two antennae on top of the top heart and a mouth on the bottom front of the top heart.
  9. Glue the tiny hearts to the ends of the antennae.
  10. Glue two wiggle eyes above the mouth.
