Materials

  • Red and Pink Construction Paper

  • Googly eyes
  • Pipe Cleaner

Tools

  • Scissors

Instructions

Cut shapes from the construction paper as follows:

1 pink heart (the head)

1 red oval (the body)

2 long red (the length of the construction paper, long ways) strips (the arms)

2 short red strips (the legs)

1 small red heart (mouth)

1 small red half circle (nose)

Glue the heart shaped onto the body to create the head.  It should slightly overlap.

You can choose to put it off to the side a little bit or centered.  

Glue the eyes, nose and mouth in place.

To make the arms,  fold the end of one strip into a square.

Fold it back and forth, back and forth until it is cinched up “accordion like”.

Repeat this step for the legs.

Glue them in place,  allow to dry.  

Bend the pipe cleaners into spirals (for the antennas) and glue onto the back of the head.

Add a cute little message such as “I love you thissssssss much”  and you have the perfect little homemade valentine!
