This craft is a great way to transform a bunch of hearts into a friendly butterfly craft.  This is a great craft to use to teach your children about the heart shape, about big and small, and about doing things in order.  It is also a fantastic Valentine's Day craft and gift!  We've found that it's almost impossible to make just one of these cute little heart butterfly crafts - they turn out so cute that kids like to make them over and over!

What you'll need:

  • Red and pink construction paper
  • Red pipe cleaners
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Red marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Tape
How to make your Heart Butterfly Craft
  • Cut two large, equally sized hearts from red construction paper.
  • Cut out two medium sized hearts from pink construction paper and glue in the center of the red hearts to form the wings.
  • Cut an oblong shape out of pink construction paper that is slightly longer than the large red hearts.
  • Cut a small heart from pink construction paper and glue to the top of the oblong piece to create a body..
  • Glue the wings on either side of the body.
  • Cut two 2-3 inch long pieces from the pipe cleaner and tape to the back of the small pink heart head.
  • Cut two very small pink hearts out and glue to the tips of the pipe cleaners.
  • Glue two googly eyes onto the head and use the red marker to draw on a smile.
