Construct this Cute Craft for Valentine’s Day & Turn Your Pencil into a Cupid’s Arrow

Click-A-Brick STEM construction toy for boys and girls

Valentine’s Day is soon and there’s no better way to celebrate than making something fun. You can turn a pencil into a cupid’s arrow with just a few pieces of stiffened felt. It makes a cute little craft and you don’t even have to take the felt off to use the pencil.

This craft comes from the PBS Parents YouTube channel and it’s super easy. Get some glue and scissors and get crafting!

Then, cut out your hearts and some thin strips from the felt. The strips should be long enough to allow for a pencil to slide through the strips when they are attached to the hearts.

Step 3

Glue a strip of the felt onto the back of each heart. Place a pencil in the middle of the heart so you know exactly where to glue the strip.

Glue two strips to the back of each fletching. Place a pencil in the middle of the fletching so you know exactly where to glue it.

That’s it! Wasn’t that super easy?

Now, when you want to use your pencil, all you need to do is slide your heart up. When you’re not using it, slide the heart down and it becomes and Cupid’s arrow again.
