Pink hearts. Pink Valentines. Pink flamingos. It’s an obvious conclusion that there could be a flamingo craft that was also a Valentine’s one! Here’s what you need:

Use the cookie cutter as a template for the flamingo’s body by pressing it into the craft foam. I got this idea from Lalymom, and her stupendously popular Spider Hand Puppet  – where she uses a lid to make a circle imprint for the spider’s body.Valentine Flamingo Craft - a fun activity for the kids!

Cut out the heart shape. From the off cuts of foam, cut out a head/beak shape and use the permanent marker to colour in the beak. Glue on a googly eye.Valentine Flamingo Craft - a fun activity for the kids!

Tape two half-lengths of pipe cleaner to the back of the heart for legs, and one at the side for the neck.Valentine Flamingo Craft - a fun activity for the kids!

Flip it back over and glue/tape the head onto the pipe cleaner. Then add some feathers!

I’ve been trying to track down the original idea for this craft and according to this article it goes back to a magazine article from 2009!
