This Valentine’s Day toilet paper roll craft is sure to be a hit with the kids! Create a whole colony of love bugs using basic craft supplies and a little imagination!
These love bugs make a great craft project for an open invitation to create! Depending on the age and cutting skills of the kiddos, you could provide some pre-cut hearts or maybe a few heart shaped templates for them to trace.
You could also use empty paper towel rolls and cut them down to size. Or even roll up a piece of construction paper and secure with glue or tape to make a tube.
Love Bugs SUPPLY LIST
- empty toilet paper rolls
- paint and brushes
- construction paper
- googly eyes
- pipe cleaners
- embellishments: mini pom poms, sequins, beads, washi tape
Apply at least one coat of paint to cover the toilet paper roll. Depending on the color and how thick it’s painted on, there may be a need for an extra coat or just some touch ups to cover the paper. Once the paint is dry, allow the kids to get creative!
I also shared this project on Somewhat Simple.
The kids can cut out heart shapes for wings or feet or even attach a few to the end of the antennas. Wrap the love bugs with some washi tape to create stripes or add some polka dots by gluing on some sequins to the butterfly wings.
And to finish it off, the kids can add a little pom pom for the nose, attach some googly eyes and draw on a smile. The possibilities are endless with this fun Valentine’s Day toilet paper roll craft project!
Have fun making your love bugs and be sure to share on Instagram using #kidspiration! I’d love to see them!
