DIY Valentine's Caterpillar, easy simple step by step tutorial

Quick and simple crafts…I love them! Especially when they are quick crafts for the kiddos. Let’s face it their attention span isn’t always the longest and usually half way through the craft they’ve already found something shiny to play with on the other side of the room.

This project won’t take up a ton of their time and will most definitely be a sweet keepsake for you for years to come.

Next, using your marker, draw a line horizontally on your paper. I did this to keep the hearts straight on the paper.
