Valentine Butterflies

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

With a body made of chewing-gum sticks and licorice-whip antennae, this valentine will be lucky to make it through lunchtime.


  • Sticks of gum
  • Licorice strings
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Heart stickers
  • Tape


  1. Place two pieces of string licorice between two sticks of gum, taping the top and bottom closed to secure the antennae in place.
  2. Next, cut two heart-shaped wings from construction paper, write your valentine message on them, and secure them to the top stick of gum with a heart sticker. Add other stickers to give personality to your butterfly.
