Cute Love Bug Homemade Valentines

Make your valentine a pom pom love bug this Valentine’s Day. This is a fun craft that the kids can help with and you probably already have most of the supplies in your craft supply stash.

These love bugs are sure to make hearts swoon. After whipping up a batch of love bugs, have your kids help you make CONVERSATION HEART MARSHMALLOW POPS. You can attach magnets or clothespins to these lady bugs for year round display. You could also skip the banner, use felt for the leaf and add a barrette or headband to the back for a unique hairpiece.
