My five-year-old son and I have been getting a little crafty for Valentine’s Day this year, and I just had to show off these cute little love bugs we made for his classmates. They were super simple to assemble, but you do have to factor glue-drying time into your crafty equation.
- small foam hearts
- medium pom-pons
- small google eyes
- faux flower stamens
- craft glue
- Glue a pom-pon onto a foam heart. Let the glue dry.
- Fold a flower stamen in the middle. Put a dab of glue at the middle and poke into the top of the pompom. Let the glue dry.
- Place two dots of glue on the front of the pompom and stick on the google eyes. Let the glue dry.
I told you to factor in the glue-drying time, didn’t I. Other than that timely process (and I did use a faster drying tacky glue), this craft project really is quick and easy. Why not create a mini love bug with your little ones, or make a whole army of them today.
