My girls love making headbands and tiaras for playtime, so they loved making these Love Bug Valentine’s Day Headband Craft! They have been playing with these love bug headbands for weeks now pretending to be little bugs.
Materials Needed to make your Love Bug Headbands:
- Red and black construction paper
- Black paint
- Googly eyes
- White crayon
- Black, gold, or silver pipe cleaners
- Craft glue
Step One: Cut a piece of red construction paper in half, stapling two sides together.
Step Two: Make polka dots on your red strips of construction paper. You can either have your child make fingerprints on the paper or use a round foam paint brush to make polka dots.
Step Three: Using black construction paper cut out the bugs face.
Step Four: Attach the googly eyes on the black piece of construction paper and with a white crayon or silver marker have your child draw a mouth. Kaidence decided that her love bug needed a nose 🙂
Step Five: Create antennas for your love bug with pipe cleaners. This must have been the girls favorite part! They wrapped the pipe cleaners around their fingers and then gently pulled them off to make spiral antennas. Which also makes for great fine motors skills practice 🙂 Tape the antennas to the back of your bugs head.
Step Six: Glue your love bugs face on the red piece of construction paper. Allow to dry for a few hours.
Step Seven: Wrap the red strip around your child’s head and staple closed to create a headband.
Hope your kiddos have as much fun as my girls did making their Love Bug Headbands! These headband crafts are also perfect for a bug unit for Spring 🙂
