Ah, you know that Valentines Day is the day that many of us are ‘bitten’ by that silly little Love Bug. So, why not share ‘sweet nothings’ with the love of your life by creating a little Love Bug valentine?
This craft is especially cute for kids and classroom parties!
All it takes is a few pieces of construction paper, pipe cleaners, stickers, an empty toilet paper roll and some glue. Quick and easy!
Paint or color the outer covering of the toilet paper tube with the color of your choice. Stand tube up on one end to let dry (if using paint).
Cut two hearts from construction paper for the wings. Fold the hearts in half to create vertical creases if desired (this will allow you to slightly bend the wings, if desired).
Attach the ‘wings’ to the back sides of the toilet paper tube.
Draw a cute face on the top end of the tube with a marker.
Wrap half of one end of the pipe cleaners around a pen or pencil and then remove the pipe cleaner, leaving the curl in the one end. Tape the pipe cleaners to the insides of the top end of the tube for the antennae.
Write your Valentine message on one wing of your Love Bug. Add holiday stickers to dress it up, if desired.
You’re all done!
