Valentine’s Day Fish Craft Details:
Age Group: 3+ yrs
Time To Complete: 10 min
This craft is quick and easy. Younger children can easily assemble the craft if an adult cuts out the hearts. However, I challenge you to let every kid cut out and decorate each of their own fish.
This is a great opportunity for kids of every age to work on their cutting and gluing skills.

Supplies Needed For This Fish Made Of Hearts
This craft supply list for this fun fish heart is minimal. You might even already have all the crafting supplies at home. But if you don’t, here is what you’ll need.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this heart fish craft:
Create Your Heart Fish Craft
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
You’ll need a piece of red, white, and pink construction paper to start this craft. However, if you have other colors on hand, feel free to mix up the colors.
Step 2: Cut Out Your Hearts
Next, cut out four different size hearts from your construction paper. If you want a red or pink fish, feel free to cut out a bigger heart in that color.
Suppose your child struggles with cutting out hearts. Fold a piece of paper in half and draw a half heart on the creased side. This way, they have a line to follow when cutting, and you will have a perfect heart when you open it.
Step 3: Glue Together Your Heart-Shaped Fish Craft
Lastly, grab your Elmer’s glue and glue together the hearts. Use the biggest heart for the body and the second-biggest for the tail.
Use the last two hearts for the fin and fish lips. Once the pieces are glued together, feel free to let your kids decorate their fish as they desire.
They can color them, add gems, you name it!
