This is ONLY kind of bug I want to see this upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday!!! Not only is Paper Plate Valentine Love Bug super kid friendly but it’s also really fun for all ages and makes for even better party decor as well!!!
It’s also really inexpensive and super simple too! With just some colorful tissue paper, a paper plate and tons of glue – you TOO can pull this easy Love Bug themed kid craft together in no time.
So please don’t go “buggy” thinking about ways to entertain your child today. Glued To My Crafts has YOU covered!!! Find our step-by-step tutorial below, grab your supplies and let the crafty fun begin! Happy crafting my friends!!!
Valentine Love Bug Craft Supplies:
* Large Paper Plate
* School Glue
* Small Paper Heart Doilies
* Tissue Paper
* Pipe Cleaner
* Wiggle Eyes
* Pom Poms
optional – glitter, rhinestones etc.
* First have children cut their tissue paper into small squares. This great to practice those cutting skills!
* Now put a good amount of glue all over the paper plate. Have your child place the tissue paper pieces on top of the glue, until the plate is completely covered.
* To finish off the Love Bug craft – go ahead and glue the wiggle eyes & pom pom nose in the center of the plate. Then staple the TWO doily hearts to the side of the paper plate for wings and the pipe cleaner bent in half for antennas on the top. Then set everything aside to let it dry completely before displaying proudly!!
Super fun, right? And of course – you can take our Paper Plate Love Bug tutorial and really make it your own, by changing up the tissue paper color or adding other embellishments you like. Glitter is always welcome in our world!!!
And because I LOVE to keep the creative juices flowing beyond just one idea – skip the paper plate and follow the above “love”bug directions but with a wooden spoon instead!!! Cute, right?! Just have children “paint” their spoon and hot glue paper doilies & pipe cleaners to it!
