Crafting with Kids: Cupid’s Arrow for Valentine’s Day

Are you already crafting for Valentine’s Day?

Here’s a fun craft and activity the kids and I have been working on ready for the big day.

Cupids Arrow craft

These cupid’s arrows are fairly simple to make, but you will need to help smaller children, especially with the cutting.

What you need:

  • Wood dowel rod
  • Decorative tape (such as washi tape)
  • Card stock (we chose a glitter stock)
  • Heart-shaped cookie cutter or stencil
  • Scissors, pencil and school glue

How to make:

Step 1:

Trace around the heart-shaped cookie cutter (or stencil) onto the reverse side of the card stock.  You will need two hearts for each cupid’s arrow.  Cut them out.  Now, using the school glue, stick the hearts together over one end of the wood dowel rod.

Step 2:

Cut (or tear) a small strip of the decorative tape and place it under the other end of the wood dowel rod.  Place another strip over the top and press the ends together.

Repeat this step so you have two decorative tape strips, and then using scissors cut small strips into each end of the decorative tape so that it resembles feathers.

Now take your cupid’s arrow outside and see how far it can fly.  I was inspired to make this after my kids recent love for paper planes.

  1. Those are adorable!

    Do you have a Xyron / sticker-maker? I use that all the time with my girls (who just turned four). There are occasions when we practice with glue, but that takes a lot of the mess out of crafting with younger kids.
