We love Valentine’s Day around here! Starting on February 1st through Valentine’s Day, I add a heart with a reason why I love my kids to their doors. They love waking up to read their new heart each morning. My kids also love making homemade valentines for their friends. Any excuse to get crafty is okay with us. This year, my 5 year old is making a batch of applesauce love bugs for her preschool pals! They are easy to make and only require a few craft supplies that you likely already have on hand. Make them for a classroom party or gift to friends for a unique Valentine idea. Do you have any special Valentine’s Day traditions?

Strawberry Applesauce
Googly Eyes
Pom Poms
Pipe Cleaners
Hot Glue Gun


Step 1: Turn the sealed applesauce cup upside down. Attach the googly eyes and a small pom pom to the applesauce cup with hot glue, as shown in the photo.

Step 2: Attach 2 pipe cleaners (1 ½” long) to the top of the love bug with hot glue. A little tip for attaching the pipe cleaners to the applesauce cup is to fold a small piece of the pipe cleaner and glue that folded piece to the cup, holding it in place until the hot glue dries.

Step 3: Add 2 medium pom poms to the top of the pipe cleaners with hot glue.

Step 4: Gift to your favorite love bug for Valentine’s Day!
