This fun project is a Valentine hit! This is an easy after school activity for which you probably have all the materials at home already.
Red construction paper Scissors Glue 4 Large rubber bands Markers
1. Cut two hearts of the same size from red construction paper. Make them bigger than your hand. Cut 4 1 inch hearts from the red paper for the puppet's hands and feet.
2. Cut each of the rubber bands so that they form elastic strings. Glue the rubber bands to the sides and bottom of one of the large hearts to form the arms and legs of the puppet.
3. Glue the tops of the two large hearts together with the ends of the rubber bands between them. Leave the bottom part open to slip your hand in.
4. Glue a small heart to the end of each elastic arm and leg. When the puppet has dried completely, draw a face with markers.
