Frugal Kid’s Valentine Craft: Wanna Be My Love Bug?

Here’s a fun activity to do with the kids that doubles as a great gift!  Thanks Momondealz’s!

I don’t know about your child, but mine (and most of his friends) LOVE picking up rocks. Here is a way to get the rocks out of your house and also refurbish them to make a creative and fun Valentine’s Day gift!

Homemade Valentines – Be My Love Bug

Paint (red, black, and white)
Printed label

1. Locate a roundish rock and paint the top of it red.

2. Then using black paint create the ladybug’s head and spots.
3. Using white paint, add eyes and other desired details.
4. Put the ladybug and other Valentine’s trinkets inside the bag and seal it with the sign “Won’t You Be My Lovebug?”

Reading Skills: There are a TON of wonderful Valentine’s Day books that you can read with your child! Here are some of my favorites:

The Night Before Valentine’s Day

The Biggest Valentine Ever

Happy Valentine’s Day, Mouse! (If You Give…)
