4 Fun Cupid Facts

The cupid is a symbol of love and is associated with Valentine’s Day. Here are 4 Fun Cupid Facts for Children:

  1. Cupid is the Roman god of love
  2. He is often shown as a baby angel with a golden bow and arrow
  3. Cupid comes from the Latin word “Cupido” and means desire.
  4. Cupid is the son of Venus (goddess of love and beauty) and Mars (god of war).

Cupid and Psyche

In Roman mythology, Cupid is the god of love. He is the son of Venus, the goodness of love and beauty, and Mars, the god of war.

The story of Cupid and the Psyche tells, that Cupid fell desperately in love because of his arrow with the princess Psyche and married her. Since she was mortal she was not allowed to look at him but did so eventually. Cupid go upset, left her, and went to heaven.

Psyche went looking for her husband to apologize when she met Venus.

But Venus was jealous because Psyche was so beautiful that people came from everywhere to worship her and forgot about Venus. Therefore she gave Psyche a nearly impossible task. She had to retrieve a box from the underworld which she did. She wanted to know what was in the box and opened it, that’s when she fell into a deep sleep midway.

Cupid missed his wife and found her asleep. That’s when he went to Jupiter the leader of the gods and asked for his help. Jupiter saw that Cupid and Psyche were truly in love and granted Psyche immortality so she could be with her husband forever!

Add our easy cupid printouts to your preschool alphabet lesson plan. While learning the letter C print out the upper and lowercase letter C worksheets. Let your students trace them and use our cupid outlines to make a craft project for the C sound.

You can adjust the difficulty level depending on your children’s age. Use the larger picture of Cupid for younger children and the medium-sized or small Cupid printable for older children.

Instead of coloring the cupid sheets with markers, they can also try various new painting techniques to make it more interesting. For example, did they try Salt Painting yet? It is really fun. Take a look at the link to find the full tutorial!

4. Cupid Stencils

Use one of our printouts as cupid stencils for Valentine’s day or wedding crafts. I recommend taking the smaller or medium-sized cupid printables to repurpose them into cupid stencils.

Our most loved painting technique for stencils is using an old toothbrush. With the help of watercolors, you can create beautiful cupid artwork.

First, you would have to print and cut a preferred Cupid pattern and then follow the toothbrush technique instruction. You can find the complete Toothbrush Technique Guide here. Enjoy!
