DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Tip 5: Glue a small piece of sandpaper on the back to make a felt board character
Tip 6: Cut construction paper into 4 inch wide strips
as long as you can make them. Tape two together to make even longer.
Measure around child's head to make a construction paper 'crown'.
Glue Heart Animal to front of the crown to make a Valentine's Day hat.
|Glue the small heart nose onto the heart face, just below the eyes.|
|Glue the heart ears onto either side of the heart head.|
|Glue the four of the heart mane pieces onto the back of the heart head... Top, bottom, left and right.|
|Glue the remaining four of the heart mane pieces onto the back of the heart head, filling in the spaces between the ones you glued on in the previous step.|
|Glue the large heart body piece upside down under the heart head.|
|Glue the smaller heart body piece upside down behind the first body piece.|
Glue the heart tail behind the heart body and you're finished!
Option for mass-producing - young children: Print out the B&W template. Trace the pieces onto stiff cardboard (back of paper pads works well) or margarine/ice cream container lids. Cut out to make permanent templates. Allow the children to trace these permanent templates onto different colors of construction paper to make their animal
Option for mass-producing - older children:
Omit the templates. Let the children cut out heart shapes in various
sizes from colored construction paper (show them how to fold paper in half
and then cut to make a perfectly symmetrical heart). Let the children
create their own animals by putting together hearts of different sizes (you
can pre-make a few example animals to give them some inspiration).
