Shared below is an easy tutorial for colorful and fun Paper Straw Valentine Darts. They are awesome to play with outside or inside, and easy for older kids to make independently.
Paper Straw Valentine Darts
My active boys love to craft and play. These paper darts were right up their alley! For added fun, invite kids to attach a Valentine’s Day message to the arrowhead, then share with a friend or beloved family member.
To make this craft you will need:
- heart paper punch
- paper straws
- Glue Dots or a glue stick
- tape (optional)
After gathering supplies, punch out 4 hearts. You will need 4 hearts/straw. Fold 3 of the hearts in half.
Cut a slit in 1 end of the straw. Slide the unfolded heart into it. This is the arrowhead. If you wish, secure a piece of tape over both sides of the heart, attaching it to the straw.
Glue the 3 folded hearts together so they make 1 large 3D heart. Cut 3 slits in the other end of the straw, then slide the large 3D heart into it. This is the fletching of your dart. If you desire, press 3 small pieces of tape over the straw, attaching the paper to it more securely.
The really fun thing about these darts is that they actually fly through the air! Kids of all ages will have a blast inventing target games and seeing how far they can throw their dart.
We enjoyed making darts in a rainbow of colors. My boys also made 2 sets (1 boy was blue, the other boy was orange) and had a Nerf style dart war in the hallway.
