Love Bugs



I brought out the pipe cleaners, pom poms and goggle eyes for some afternoon crafty fun. With Valentines Day in mind, we created Love Bugs by using pom poms for the body, heart shaped felt stickers for the feet, goggle eyes, and pipe cleaners for antennae!



The best part of these little critters is that the feet are stickers so you can stick them wherever you want...

Like on your shirt!

or on the window!

I also pulled out the pasta strainer for more fun with the pipe cleaners. 
This project was a little easier for my 2-year-old and kept him occupied for awhile.



I heart pipe cleaners :o)
