You will need
Red card Black paper Pipe cleaners Tape Scissors
Take your piece of paper and place it in the landscape position. Fold the top corners to the bottom ones to split it perfectly in half. Then, cut along the fold line to give yourself two long equal strips.
Secure your two equal strips end to end as shown above and decorate with some black paper hearts or your chosen decorations. Secure the two loose ends of your headband together to create your crown shape.
To make the antennae, twirl two pipe cleaners around your finger or a pencil to create two spring shapes. Glue a heart to one end of your spring and then glue the other end down inside your crown at the top.
Add any last minute decorations and your valentines love bug crown is finished!

He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish
