Read a bit about DLTK's Grow With Me Craft Concept to get some ideas on how this basic craft idea can be used with different materials to make it appropriate for everyone from ages 2 thru 82!
Tip 1: Include the message "Hug me and SQUEEZE me and call me yours!"
Tip 2: Glue the heart animal paper craft to the front of a folded over piece of construction paper or a doily to make a cute Valentine's Day card.
Tip 3: Purchase fancy paper from the scrapbooking store and print the B&W version onto this for an extra fancy Heart Animal.
Tip 4: Scotch tape a straw or popsicle stick to the bottom to make an octopus puppet.
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 face onto the large heart head.
Glue the head onto the body.
Glue the heart letters onto the tentacles to spell "I Love You".
Take a minute to fill in our short survey.
