Build a Love Bug: Crafting Version

Get ready to spread some love with our vibrant Valentine’s Day activity: “Build a Love Bug: Crafting Version.” This delightful crafting project is not only a fun way for students to express their creativity but also an excellent opportunity to practice following directions and develop fine motor skills.

With just a few simple materials, your kiddos can bring their own adorable love bugs to life. Gather googly eyes, pink, red, and purple pipe cleaners, heart beads, red and pink buttons, heart straws, and pink, red, and purple Play-Doh to get started. Then, let their imagination take flight as they select their materials and begin crafting their unique love bugs.

This activity encourages children to engage in hands-on exploration and problem-solving as they assemble their love bugs step by step. From attaching googly eyes to shaping pipe cleaner antennae, each task provides an opportunity for fine motor skill development and creative expression.

As your students work on their love bugs, they’ll also have the chance to practice color recognition and sorting, adding an educational element to the fun. Whether they choose to decorate their bugs with hearts, buttons, or other embellishments, each creation is sure to be as unique as the child who made it.

Ideal for Valentine’s Day celebrations in the classroom or at home, “Build a Love Bug: Crafting Version” is a delightful way to foster creativity, fine motor skills, and holiday spirit. Watch as your little ones beam with pride at their adorable love bug creations, spreading joy and love wherever they go.

"Chicago ABA Therapy is a boon for special needs kids and parents. They take a play-based, personalized approach and meet the kids where they are. They also go above and beyond - our ABA therapist took time to make sure we as parents understood every aspect of our child's experience, understood how to read his progress reports and generally made us feel a part of his therapy. My child loved all his therapists. Highly recommend the team!"

"We were so happy with our experience with Chicago ABA. We began working with them when our son was almost 4, a few months after his autism diagnosis. It was such an amazing team to work with - everyone was professional, responsive, flexible, and worked so hard for our son to meet his goals, which he did beautifully. We worked together for almost 2 years before he left for kindergarten, and in that time period he met almost all of his goals. We went through several bumps in the road with behavioral difficulties, and the Chicago ABA team did an amazing job helping us problem solve, try new strategies and think of ways to translate those strategies at home. We couldn't recommend them more highly - anyone who works with Chicago ABA will be lucky to have the experience!"
