Love Bug Valentines Day Countdown

Your kids will love helping you make this Love Bug Valentines Day countdown chain! What a cute decoration that provides a little counting practice, too.

This preschool craft is easily adaptable for different ability levels. If your kids are too young to draw the heart shapes, let them use stickers.


• Construction paper • Google eyes • Glue stick • Tape • Scissors


Turn your construction paper horizontally, and cut a 2″ strip down the length of the paper. You can stack the papers so you’re cutting through more than one sheet at a time.

Cut as many strips as you need to complete the countdown chain. Add google eyes, eyelashes, and a smile to the middle of all of the strips you just cut out.

Cut two hearts out of pink construction paper (or color of your choice). Use a black marker or stickers to decorate the hearts and the body of the butterfly as desired.

To Make the Butterfly

Use a black sharpie to create stripes on the bee’s body. Cut two small pink hearts. Again, decorate them with marker or stickers. Attach the hearts to the back to form wings.
