Love Bugs and Beautiful Butterflies: A Lovely Valentine's Craft For Kids

How many sweet little pet names do you have for your kids?

I have about a million that I like to rotate through but lately, the favourite seems to be calling my sweet girls my little "Love Bugs". The girls think it is hilarious! Whenever I call them that, they will laugh and say "No! Mommy, you're a little love bug!" The best part is that then they will run over and give me lots of hugs and kisses!

So with that in mind, I thought it would fun to make some sweet little love bugs for Valentine's.

This is a great craft project for kids and one that has very little cleanup! Which is a must for me!

The Supplies That You Will Need;

Popsicle Sticks
Markers or Crayons
Colourful Paper
Pipe Cleaners
Googly Eyes

Art Supplies

Step One:

Draw out the wings aka Hearts! I used the Popsicle sticks as a guide to make sure I drew the hearts the right sizes.

Step Two:

Cut out the wings!

Step Three:

The best part decorate the hearts! On the wings, I drew lines where I was going to glue the Popsicle sticks just so my girls wouldn't put any stickers there making it difficult later gluing it together.

At this point, I also coloured the Popsicle.

Step Four and Five:

I did these steps while the girls were decorating their heart. First, I glued the googly eyes on, let them dry for a bit. While they were drying I cut little pieces off of the pipe cleaner to make antennae for our little love bugs. When the eyes were dry, I used a hot glue gun to attach the antenna, just to make sure they would be really secure.

Step Six:

Once the wings are beautifully decorated, glue them to the Popsicle sticks! But before you glue you need to decide do you want a sweet little Love Bug or a Beautiful Butterfly!?!?

For a Love Bug put the heart/wings upside down, and for a Butterfly put the wings right side up!
