Homemade Valentines: Bighearted Hello Card
Total Time 1 to 2 hours Ages preschooler

With creativity and a package of oversize googly eyes, 6-year-old Luke Fleener of Houston, Texas, created this bighearted cyclops with an in-sight-ful inscription: "I've got my eye on you!"

What you'll need

  • Scissors
  • Red card stock
  • Hole punch
  • Heavy red yarn (we used chenille)
  • Tacky glue
  • 40-millimeter googly eyes
  • Markers
  • White paper or card stock

How to make it

  1. Bighearted Hello - Step 1

    Cut 1 large heart and 4 smaller ones (ours were 5 1/2 inches and 1 1/4 inches across) from the red card stock. Or use our template.

  2. Punch 4 holes in the large heart and 1 in each of the smaller hearts.

  3. Step 3

    Cut two 12-inch lengths of yarn, then thread each piece in through an armhole and out through a leg hole. Tie on the hands and feet.

  4. Glue on the googly eye, then draw on eyelashes and a smile.

  5. Write your message on a small piece of the white paper, then glue it to one of the hands.
