This fish Valentine is a great one for lots of different ages to make. We love to come up with new Valentine’s Day card ideas & my oldest son requested one with a fish. I love the simplicity of this one – I hope you love it too!
Did you know: There is a science to making sure that there are enough fresh roses to go around when it comes to February 14. In an effort to provide the flowers for the holiday, countries including Ecuador, Kenya, or Columbia ship roses to the United States, since they do not grow in the colder temperatures we experience in February.
Materials you’ll need:
- White paper
- Pink, purple, & red paper
- Googly eye
- Black sharpie

- Cut your pink & red paper into different size hearts. I started with the body of the fish and then cut out the smaller hearts to fit the body. You will end up using 3 hearts.
- Glue your fish body onto your white paper.
- Add your fin & lips.
- Glue on a googly eye.
- Write your message to the top and bottom using your black sharpie.
- Add little bubbles coming out of the fish’s mouth.
- Glue onto a slightly larger sheet of purple paper – you’re finished!
Tip: If you have younger kids – pre cut out all the hearts for them.
Here’s a short video of us making our fish valentine:
Why I love this craft:
- It was a simple craft to upcycle our scrap paper.
- My kids practice their hand eye coordination when placing their hearts.
- We already had all the supplies at home.
- It’s adorable!
