Valentine Crafts for Kids Heart

How cute is this little guy?! Make a heart person by using some paper or card. All you have to do is cut out a large heart using either paper or card. Your preschooler should be able to follow a rough line if you draw the heart outline, your toddler will need your help to cut it out completely. Decorate as you wish using colours of your choice or stick on googly eyes.

Once the decoration is complete, cut four strips of paper and fold them accordion style to create arms and legs, glue them on to your finished heart person. You can add heart hands and feet to really give your person that Valentine’s day look! To make the most out of this craft, why not make a few heart people and turn them into Valentine bunting?
