Halos Love Bugs
Nothing says love quite like a sweet afternoon treat on Valentine’s Day! Craft a little mandarin munchkin to show your significant other or your kids that you were thinking about them.
These little Halos love bugs take just minutes to assemble, but the joy on your recipients’ faces when they see them will be more than worth it.
What you need:
Foam hearts in two sizes, large and small
Using glue spots, adhere a large foam heart underneath the Halos mandarin to create feet. They stick out like a sweet pair of sneakers!
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.
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!
Then, use glitter glue to make a cute little button nose.
There you have it, the sweetest afternoon treat for Valentine’s Day!
These are perfect for class parties, and to bag up to give to classmates as gifts. Have a Halos Love Bug crafting get-together, the perfect activity to engage a whole bunch of kids during a February play date. You could even add hair, arms and miniature love bug clothing, or try to make love bugs reflecting you and your friends’ own personalities. They could also make great gifts from the kids to their teachers, grandparents, aunts, uncles or neighbors. Share the love!
