The love bugs are biting today! As much as kids love candy, I think they’ll also love these two, candy-free Valentine’s Day crafts. The colorful Love Bugs are designed by Kathleen George, and the instructions are on StyrofoamCrafts.com. The materials are pretty basic, and I’m sure you have most of them on hand – felt, foamies, chenille stems, googly eyes, pompoms, etc. I’m also giving away more fun for kids – the current issue of Kids Crafts 1-2-3, packed with more Valentine Day crafts for kids.
Click on through for instructions for the Love Bug. (Hint: If making the wings from fabric and fusible webbing seems intimidating, cut them from a foamie sheet or felt instead.)
The Bouncing Love Bugs are a little more interactive, and kids can dance them around on their elastic strings.
Kathleen also designed the Love Bugs in the current issue of Kids Crafts 1-2-3.
I am giving away two issues of Kids Crafts 1-2-3, and adding in the winter issue of Create & Decorate, too. That’s a magazine for the kids, and one for mom, too! To win one of the magazine gift packs, leave a comment below and tell me about the Valentine’s Day crafts you’re making this year. Leave your comment by Tuesday, February 4, and I’ll announce two winners on February 6.
