Well, she has come up with a bunch of her own fun kid’s craft ideas and this is the first of many. I’m going to let her take it away…

Here’s my sweet Lucy’s written instructions: 

Lucy Crafting Valentine Airplane Instructions @makeandtakes.com

1. First get a piece of paper or anything your scissors can cut through.

2. Fold the paper in half.

3. Cut half a heart out of the folded side, (beginners can trace half a heart with their pencil).

4. Open up the heart if you like how it turned out. You can keep it like that, if you don’t like it, make it look good to you.

5. Fold the heart back in half on a flat solid surface, to make the wings, bring the outer side of the heart to the folded side of the heart, fold. Do that with the other side too.

  1. Hi, thanks for sharing this. Your ideas are very neat and crafty. I been looking around for things to do with my little one. He’s just ecstatic everytime we try something new. However, he losses interest immediately, so I am always on the look out for something new. Thanks a bunch for this
