We made these "Love Bugs" for Valentine's Day this year. We used watercolour paper which helped with the effect. Student put a big puddle of watercolour paint in the middle of their page, then tilted the paper from side to side to create the legs and arms. Once the bugs were dry, students added cut out hearts for arms and legs. With a sharpie, they drew and cut out eyes on a white piece of paper. The last step was adding the simple eyes and mouth. Very easy, fun project!
