Every February we seem to get bitten by the love bug. Love is in the air and we start seeing in hues of red, purple, and pink! One of my favorite things to do with my girls to celebrate a holiday is create some handmade crafts or keepsakes. And if there is a craft to capture their hand prints or remember those sweet little finger prints, you bet we’re doing it! Recently, my oldest daughter has developed an interest in bugs. She’s become quite the entomologist! In planning for some Valentine’s Day fun this year, I decided to incorporate some love bug crafts and activities to really expand on her latest hobby.
We’ve put together some fun ways to spread a little love this Valentine’s Day with 14 different love bug crafts and activities. You’ll find activities such as open invitations for love bug play dough or process art to name building practice and homemade cards. And of course there are some adorable fingerprint and hand print crafts. I can’t wait to get started with my little love bugs!
