Valentine’s Day Fish Craft Details:
Age Group: 3+ yrs
Time To Complete: 10 min
This craft is quick and easy. If an adult cuts out the hearts, younger children will easily be able to assemble the craft. 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 is very small and all of the crafting supplies you should have 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
To start this craft, you’ll need a piece of red, white, and pink construction paper. However, if you have other colors on hand, feel free to mix up the colors.
You’ll also need glue, scissors, and something to write with. If you don’t have googly eyes on hand, you can paint, color crayon or marker to draw them on.
Step 2: Cut Out Your Hearts
Next, cut out four different size hearts from your construction paper if you want to have, 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 when you open it, you will have a perfect heart.
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.
