I have a really cute love bug craft for Valentine’s Day for you today! I can’t believe that the holidays are now over! What the heck? Time just flies and it is crazy! My kids just went back to school on January 4th. They haven’t been to school since August and that was only for about 3 days and then there was an outbreak of old Coronavirus, so I pulled my kids out because the schedule was SO insane! I did not want my kids to worry about schedules!

So really, my kids have not been in a real school since March of last year! I have been homeschooling them and that has been a chore in and of itself! Then, add two blogs into the mix and me being mom, maid, and other things, and I just did not have any time (or patience!) left! Gah!
So, what the heck does all of that jibber-jabbering have to do with this super cute love bug craft? Well, perhaps you are in the same boat I was in at the beginning of last year and you need some inspiration to keep your kiddos entertained and BUSY, right? I am hoping that this fun Valentine’s Day craft for kids will lead you in the right direction to allowing your kids to not need you for about 1/2 hour or so, so YOU can get some stuff done around the house (or for YOU!).
