Young hearts (and fingers!) will dance at the sight of these lively paper puppets -- which are a snap to make.
Cut a heart from colored card stock or heavy construction paper (use it as a template to make more).
Punch a starter hole for each finger with a hole punch, then use scissors to enlarge the circle; a child's fingers should fit snugly through the holes.
Decorate the heart with a paint pen or marker, adding facial features, and write your message on the back. Glue on googly eyes.
