Heart crafts are always fun to make around Valentine’s Day. One of our favorites has been this cute heart cat.
(Check out our Valentine’s Day Crafts & Activities page for more ideas.)
Make your own Valentine’s Day Heart Cat!
You will need construction paper, scissors, and a glue stick for this craft.
For each cat you will need to cut out:
- One large heart for the body
- One smaller heart for the head
- Three small hearts for the eyes and nose
- Two triangles for ears
- A tail
For toddlers and young preschoolers you may want to have the pieces cut out already. If you draw the shapes out ahead of time, older preschoolers can work on scissor skills while cutting them out. And, of course, older children can learn to fold the paper and make their own hearts during this craft.
Once they have their cat glued together, they can use crayons to add details like a mouth, whiskers, toes, etc.
We had so much fun making heart cats, that I wanted one other simple Valentine’s Day craft.
If your kids are still in a crafting mood after you make your cats, try a few heart flowers, too! You’ll need: 3 hearts for each flower’s petals, a different color heart for the flower’s center, stem, and 2 small green hearts for leaves.
I suggest having them glue the pieces of the flower onto a larger piece of paper to make it easier for little hands.
