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!
