I’ve been so excited for this post! Valentine’s crafts for kids are one of my favorite to make. Today, we’ll be making Valentine’s Love Bugs. We have made these super cute Love Bugs for the past 4 years now. It’s just one of those crafts we all love. Even my older kids got in on making them which always warms my heart! I love that they are not “too cool” to sit down and make crafts with mom!
Last year we had so much fun making these, we ended up with over 60 of them, so the kids were able to take them to school to hand out to their friends.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I bet you’re kids are excited for a new craft project! I know mine are! These Love Bugs are so quick & easy to make. And I’m sure you probably already have most of the supplies on hand.
We made these a couple years ago for my daughter’s YouTube channel. Here’s the video (skip to 7:23 for the Love Bug Craft)
Let’s get creative!
