Tip 1: Include the message "Have a purr-fect Valentine's Day!"
Tip 2: Glue the heart animal to the front of a folded over piece of construction paper or scrapbook paper 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 a 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.
- Print out the template of choice. I like printing the B&W version on colored paper.
- Color (where appropriate).
- Cut out the template pieces. (the pieces on the template are at about the angle they will be on the finished craft. That should help you sort out which pieces belong where)
- Glue pieces together:
|Glue large upside down heart so it overlaps medium upside down heart to form the body|
|Glue wiggly piece onto the medium upside down heart to form the tail.|
|Add the second large upside down heart (the one with the eyes on it) so it overlaps the body to form the head.|
|Add the smallest pink heart to form the nose.|
|Glue the small pink hearts into the center of the hearts that are just slightly larger to form the ears..|
|Glue the ears onto the head so the points are sticking up.|
