Love Bug Valentine's Day Craft Plus "You're a Cutie" Free Printable

Valentine's is right around the corner and do you know what your plans are yet? With everything going on in the world, we are sticking to our usual Date Night at Home. But for the kiddos I thought I would try something fun. They have been out of in-school and back to virtual so they haven't making as many crafts like the normally do. So I thought it would fun to do an easy little craft for Valentine's Day to stimulate their creativity

Love Bug Valentine's Day Craft Plus You're a Cutie Free Printable

So we decided on these super easy "Love Bugs" made with Halo Cutie Mandarin Oranges - the sweet, seedless, easy-to-peel snack both kids and parents love.

What you need:

Halos mandarins
Foam hearts in two sizes, large and small
Googly eyes
Glitter glue
Glue spots 

What You Do:

1. Using glue spots, adhere a large foam heart underneath the Halos mandarin to create feet. They stick out like a sweet pair of sneakers! 

2. Insert clean toothpicks into two smaller foam hearts (or if the foam hearts are thin, use a sticky dot on the back of the foam heart) and then insert the toothpicks into the top of the Halos mandarin next to each other to serve as lovey-dovey antennae. 

3. Use the glue spots once more to attach the googly eyes to the front of your love bug. You can use big, close-together googly eyes for an inquisitive-looking love bug or smaller, further apart ones for a thoughtful little dude. Or try different shapes for a goofy one! 

4. Then, use glitter glue to make a cute little mouth. 

If you are gifting Valentine's this year, place a Halo Mandarin "Cutie" Orange in a bag with the printable below or found HERE. Print like a 5x7 image and they will print the perfect size for your little cutie bug. I printed mine at 8x10 so they are larger. Or you could craft your love bug and the tag. Either way, the recipient is sure to enjoy!
