My big kids love doing crafts on their own. Around the holidays, I like to have a box of craft supplies that they can use to create whatever they want. Lately they have been wanting to make little animals out of stuff which made me think of these silly Valentine’s Day love bugs. Love bugs have kind of been our thing over the years with Valentine’s Day: 5 years ago, we mailed out these cards and 4 years ago we made all these love bug crafts. This year, I gave my girls the supplies and told them to create some silly love bugs!
I plan to make these in my daughter’s 1st grade class. They are cute to bring home to their families, easy to make and give the kids plenty of creative freedom.
Love Bug Supplies:
- Foam hearts
- Google eyes
- Pipe cleaners
- Other fun decorations – get creative & have fun!
I got all of the supplies for the Love Bugs from Oriental Trading. They have a huge selection of craft supplies and Valentine’s Day supplies.
Share the Love
Since they were making so many silly bugs, I asked the girls if they wanted to give some away. They thought of sending them to kids that will be in the hospital on Valentine’s Day because the silly bugs might make them smile. I loved the idea and hope these little love bugs put a smile on someone’s face.
