For a fun craft this year, I had the kids color hearts, cut them out, and make butterflies out of them. I think that they made adorable little love bugs. Maybe next I will create different bugs to be cut out, but for now it is butterflies.
I had the kids glue their butterflies onto my base paper so that they could write at the side of the paper what their favorite thing about valentines day is. Some of the kids colored with good detail, and some were happy to have each heart just one color.
I have the basic white hearts that require coloring, and then I made some colored hearts in case you want to focus on just the cutting and gluing process.
