I'm a stay-at-home mom with a teacher's heart. I'm always looking for new, fun things to do with my kids that are educational and memorable.

Valentine Butterfly Pops!

Homemade Valentines Craft That Won't Make Anyone Cry

Homemade things are always fun to make with kids, right? Sometimes a craft can be to technical or too messy and someone always ends up crying - at least this is what has happened in our house. ;o) Thankfully, this craft isn't a stressful one. The butterfly's are fairly easy to cut out once you've done one or two to get the hang of the shape and the rest comes together easy enough.

My daughter loved using the hole punch, putting the pop in the butterfly and especially using the glue dots for the eyes. If you can't find or don't have glue dots, a simple dot of liquid glue will do the trick, but will take a bit longer before they're ready to be shared with friends.


  1. To cut the wing shape, fold a piece of paper into thirds and cut almost a "M" shape. Unfold paper and see your beautiful butterfly wings. If it doesn't look exactly like a butterfly's wings, trim as needed until you have the shape you want.
  2. Using a hole punch, make two holes for the pop to fit in.
  3. Have your kiddo write the "to" and "from" portion of the Valentine before putting the pop in the paper.
  4. Carefully place the pop in the holes. Depending on the size of your hole punch, if it looks like the pops will fall out before they're delivered to friends, just add a piece of tape to the back of the Valentine to ensure it doesn't fall out.
  5. Using glue dots, add googely eyes to the pop.
  6. Share with friends and enjoy their happy reactions!

Supplies Needed

  • 10 8x10 colored construction paper, possibly more/less depending how many you plan to make
  • 1 bag googley eyes
  • glue dots
  • 1 pretty pen
  • 24 dum dum pops, or however many you need for your childs' class
