Baby food jars Cotton balls Construction paper Glue Scissors Picture of child
Fill jars with cotton balls. Cut out 1 large heart, which is just a little taller and wider than the front of the jar. Cut out a medium size heart, which is about 1 inch larger than the base of the jar. Cut out 2 small hearts (about the size of a penny or dime). Glue large heart to the face of the jar so that the top of the heart extends beyond the top of the jar (gives the appearance of ears). Glue medium heart to the base of the jar so that the top of the heart extends beyond the bottom of the jar (top of heart sticking out from the base will look like feet). Glue small hearts on the sides of the jar in the middle (looks like hands). Glue a cotton ball to the back of the jar (looks like a cottontail). Have kids draw the face on the large heart before gluing.
