Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Here is a cute and simple project that is great for the little ones. This cute little pom pom critter will bring enjoyment in the classroom or for anyone involved. It’s easy to put together and fun! (Plus everyone will love his soft and cuddley appearance.)
Things to do:
1. Place two of the large foamie hearts on the table side by side and place a little glue on each towards the center where they both meet. Gently place one pom pom on top and press. Let glue dry or cool. The rounded tops of the hearts should stick out and these will become feet.
2. Take your remaining pom pom and glue two of the small heart foamies on one side of the pom pom. This will become the head of the small critter. Glue on another small heart for the nose and add the googly eyes above the nose. Let the glue dry or cool.
3. Finally, add two more small foamie hearts on the sides of the body for the hands and one more small heart onto the front of the body (you can use a plain foamie heart or use a foamie conversation heart to leave a little saying). Take your pom pom head and glue onto the pom pom body. Now your pom pom love critter is finished! Quick and simple! **Tip** You may also want to think about using craft magnets as a way to display and show off the little creations on teacher’s filing cabinets, or even the fridge at home.
Aleene’s craft glue works well on craft foam and pom poms. It is also safer for little hands but it will take longer to dry and for the project to be finished. Hot glue is a lot faster but we advise strict adult supervision.
