I hosted a small Valentine’s Day party for a dear friend and her kids. We had four kiddos under five in total. I knew right away I wanted minimal candy and maximum crafty. Everyone made a Cupid’s Bow and Arrow craft and I think they were a big hit!
Before the guests arrived, I had pre-cut all the arrow heads and bottoms. Make sure to fold your felt in half so you end up with matching double pieces.
We let the kids pick which colors they wanted and then it was a parent job to hot.glue the felt onto the straws. We basically sandwiched the straw in-between the two felt pieces and glued away.
Next up was decorating the bow + arrow quiver (i totally had to google what this part was called. i’ve not kept up with my bow and arrow terminology). I had precut two wrapping paper rolls into approximately 8″ lengths. Each kiddo colored with colored pencils, crayons and washi tape to their little heart’s desire. Some went minimalist (the boys) and some went all out (the girls).
Here is my Kiddo #1’s handiwork in action!
