Do you love to craft with the kids?
It seems we do a lot more crafts in the winter time, when the weather seems to keep us indoors more.
February always inspires plenty of Valentine’s Day crafts for kids, many including hearts.
The simple shape can inspire so many fun Heart Shaped Animals.
Grab the construction paper, scissors, and glue and get ready to make some adorable animals from hearts! This is one of our favorite heart crafts for kids.
If you are working with younger children, I suggest cutting out a variety of hearts, in different sizes and colors, ahead of time. This will allow your child to take the hearts and start manipulating them to form their animal craft right away.
Older children will have fun cutting out their own hearts and they create Valentine’s Day animal crafts.

Heart Shaped Animals
Kids will have fun making this Cute Bear from Hearts. It would be the perfect homemade Valentine card.
This super simple Heart Shaped Cat is easy enough for even preschool crafters to make.
This Sweet Fox is sure to melt your heart. I love those big eyes!
Penguins are always popular in the winter time. This Paper Heart Penguin is so much fun to make. Your child may choose to make a whole family of penguins!
There is something kids love about spotty-dotty bugs. Make this Ladybug Made with Hearts with the kids to decorate the walls this Valentine’s Day.
This adorable Folded Heart Mouse would be cute to give as a homemade Valentine. Just open up the heart and write your message inside.
This Heart Peacock would look gorgeous hanging on the walls this February.
Or, instead of directing your kids as to what animal to craft, you may want to let them use their imagination.
My preschooler had fun creating her own heart butterfly and caterpillar.
She also created a super cute dog from the hearts.
What heart shaped animals will your child create?
