Need a fun and easy craft for your children? This is it!
It’s not only festive but super easy to do and doesn’t require special materials. Many of you probably have everything you need in your home already.
Draw different sized hearts using a variety of colored sheets of construction paper. These will become body parts; bodies, feet, heads, eyes, and mouths. If you want a perfect heart shape, try tracing the outer edge of different sized heart-shaped cookie cutters.
You can also draw different shapes for different animal body parts such as tails, and noses.
Carefully cut along to lines and sort the pieces per size, color, and shape.
Allow your children to choose which pieces they want to make a variety of animals. Then glue the pieces together.
Use the marker to add features to their animals such as eyes, whiskers, nose holes, nails, etc.

Finished animals can be used to make Valentines Day garland, adorn homemade Valentine cards, or to hang on the refrigerator as holiday decorations.
