For Letter L week we talked about lady bugs. But since it was close to Valentine's day, we made lovebugs instead of ladybugs.
They served the dual purpose of being cute and being Valentine's card holders.
We also made ladybugs for snack. We used grapes, halved strawberries, toothpicks, and mini chocolate chips.

For the Valentine's Holders, Here's What You Need:
3 paper plates
Red Tissue paper
Heart cut outs
Construction Paper
1/2 Pipe Cleaner
Googly Eyes

Here's What We Did:
1. Cut one of the plates in half and decorate the back side with hearts.
2. Staple it to the front a full plate so it makes a pocket.
3. Cut out a face from the third plate. Draw a mouth, glue on a construction paper tongue, and glue on the googly eyes.
4. Tape pipe cleaner folded in half to the back of the face and top with hearts. Glue onto the body.
5. Cut out and glue heart shaped tissue paper wings to the back of the body.
6. Cut out and glue construction paper legs to the back of the body.
Optional: Punch a hole in the top so that you can hang up their card holders.
