I made a Love Bug Butterfly Craft with my son many years ago but have never made one of these classic Valentine’s day crafts with my youngest. So looking around at what supplies I had on hand and how she loves to play with things after we make them cork Love Bugs just made sense. You could use paint but I opted for the least amount of drying time so we could play with them by dinner time when the glue dried.
Gather your materials. You will need some corks, red markers, googly eyes, glue, double stick tape ( or more glue if drying time isn’t a concern), pink and or red construction paper, a heart punch or scissors, and a tray to keep the rolly polly corks on the table and frustration levels low.
Start by coloring your corks. My daughter decided to make a mama and a baby love bug so she colored two while I made one as well. If you want to spread this craft out over a longer period you could paint the corks and wait for them to dry. We are not good at waiting so we used sharpies.
