Silly Heart Puppets

We've been making a lot of Valentines for our family and friends, so I thought the girls would enjoy doing something for themselves. We got out all the fun supplies: puff balls, googly eyes, paint, and glitter and made a couple of silly heart puppets.

Supplies Needed:
Cardboard (I used an old cereal box)
Large craft sticks
Googly eyes
Puff balls, glitter and any other embellishment you want to add

We started by gluing our craft sticks onto the backs of our cardboard hearts. Next we painted. After the painting was done, it was time for the glitter. I had the girls sprinkle the glitter on the wet paint, which will hold it on as well as glue.

Finally, it was time for the embellishments! We glued colorful puffballs and googly eyes on our hearts. Use your imagination! Scraps of fabric, ribbon, sequins, and beads are just a few of the things you could add to your puppets.

They're a bit kooky and a lot silly and we had a great time making them! Now it's time to have a lot of fun playing with them!
