Puppy Love Valentine for Kids – Heart Shaped Dog Craft

184 views

I love making Valentine’s Day projects with my boys. When Johnny was little, he would come home with the cutest little crafts from daycare. When I had my other boys, I always made sure to make my favorites with them. This heart shaped dog craft is always on the list. One year when Johnny was in elementary school, we made these for hi entire class in a smaller size. This craft is fun for all ages!

Puppy Love Valentine for Kids - Heart Shaped Dog Craft - Mom Spotted

You don’t need much to make these. Most classrooms even keep all these supplies in stock. If not I found all my supplies at Oriental Trading.

You can make your Puppy any color you’d like. We stuck to using our construction paper, so our colors were limited but worked. See the photo above to see how many hearts you need to cut out. Having them, all prepared ahead of time made it fun for Sawyer just to piece it all together. We start with the large white heart and the big brown one. The big brown one needs to be cut down the center and then attach them to the bottom of the large white heart as shown below. You’ll also want to use your red heart here. We used a heart punch we had on hand, but I’d make mine a little larger if I were cutting it by hand.

Flip the puppy over and take the next biggest brown heart and glue it to the front where the bottom meets the top of the white.

We then added the small brown heart for his spotted eye and then used my sharpie to mark where I wanted the mini heart to go. We used a mini heart punch, but you could just cut them tiny or use some heart confetti pieces.

When he was done, he was so proud of what he had made. I will have him write his name on the back, and it will be one of he is preschool teachers Valentine’s Day card for their party next week.

If you have older kids, you can write cute phrases on them as our favorite: I’m MUTTS about you!

    Our family just got a new puppy, and this would have been the best Valentines Day card. I am thinking I can make this into a St.Patrick’s Day card instead. Thanks for the idea. I love it.
