Happy Valentine’s Day.You Bug Me.Posted: 02/14/2012
This is the first year that Max was actually excited about Valentine’s Day. I think he was too young to really get the concept of the holiday up until this year, or maybe he just decided that a holiday based on love and chocolate is kinda great. His nursery school has a theme for their class each week, and last week’s theme was “bugs & insects”. I racked my brain to try and come up with some kind of buggy themed Valentine’s Day card he could give to all his teachers and classmates. I nixed my first few ideas of a slug wrist corsage and “maggots need love too” chocolate bar and went for the quintessential pretty bug, the butterfly. This is a super easy craft. Plus you get to use up the rest of the googly eyes from our last craft project.
Glitter sticker back foam paper (I bought mine at Michael’s)
Glue the googly eyes onto the wrapper of the lollipop. Non-toxic glue please!
Cut out 2 equally sized hearts out of construction paper for your butterfly’s wings and a smaller single heart out of the glitter sticker paper. Sizes will vary depending on the size of your lolly and personal preference.
Lay out the wings behind the lollipop stick and lay the small glitter heart (remember to expose the sticker back) on top, to hold everything into place. Decorate wings as desired. Happy hearts day!
