Animals made from hearts ~ Valentine Craft Ideas
With Valentines Day right around the corner, our house is slightly heart crazy. I have a ton of Valentine craft ideas floating around in my head, and I can’t wait to try them all out. Currently my kitchen island is covered in colorful heart shapes and paper scraps. Love it. Who knew Heart Animals could be so adorable.
Each image below has a photo of the hearts used and our finished heart animal.
Heart Fish ~ Valentines Craft for Preschoolers
Heart Dragonfly ~ Valentines Craft for Preschoolers
The body is built with graduated sizes of hearts. We created the wings by layering half hearts. The top wings are slightly larger than the bottom set. All this little guy needs is a little glitter.
I love this simple floppy eared puppy. The heart tongue and whiskers were our favorite additions.
Heart Bird ~ Valentines Craft for Preschoolers
Chirp, chirp. Tweet, tweet. Just like our fish, we added a few slits to the wings of our little bird to create dimension. The addition of whimsical heart tuft of hair makes me smile.
Heart Owl ~ Valentines Craft for Preschoolers
I have a little owl obsession, and I am elated with how this little guy turned out. “Hoo” can resist these adorable round eyes?
Heart Monkey ~ Valentines Craft for Preschoolers
My daughter would love to have a pet monkey, however this little heart monkey will have to do;) We create this little guy in a number of different color combinations, but blue and brown was our favorite.
Heart Ladybug ~ Valentines Craft for Preschoolers
Ladybugs are always a favorite, but when made out of hearts…adorable!
