Getting Creative with Valentine’s Day!

Standard
Valentine's Day Weepul

Valentine's Day Weepul

 

For pom pom critters enrichment last week, I did a Valentine’s Day themed activity. Of course.

Not only do the kids go crazy for pom pom critters, they also go crazy for weepuls. So for this activity I decided to combine the two and create Valentine’s Day Angel Weepuls. Each kid made two; one for themselves and one for their ‘Valentine’.

I do understand that this particular craft would have been more useful if posted BEFORE today. But I have been a busy busy bunny and I failed, however, this can always be adjusted to fit any occasion.

 

 

 

Materials You Need (to make 1):

What You'll Need

What You'll Need

1     1″ pom pom

1     TINY pink pom pom

2     googly eyes

red felt with a sticker bottom (found at Micheal’s)

white felt

sparkly pipe cleaner (found at Micheal’s)

tacky glue

scissors

a “Happy Valentine’s Day” strip of paper

 

 

Instructions:

Step 1: Cut a heart out of the red felt and a heart out of the white felt; making the white heart a little larger than the red

Step 2: Glue the strip of paper to the pointy part of the red heart; making sure you’ll be able to read the message when you glue the pom pom ball on top in the next step

Step 3: Glue the 1″ pom pom ball on top of the strip of paper and the pointy part of the red heart

Step 4: Make a halo with the sparkly pipe cleaner

         I did this by wrapping one of ends around my pinky finger to create the circle part; I also made it a point to leave a      semi-long part at the end for gluing

Step 5: Glue the semi-long part of the pipe cleaner to the back of the weepul, arranging just right so the halo part hangs over the head

Step 6: Glue the white felt heart right ways up to the back of weepul and over the pipe cleaner to create the wings

Step 7: Glue on the googly eyes and the nose to front of the weepul

Step 8: Keep one for yourself and give the other to your Valentine.

Give one to your Valentine

One for you! One for your Valentine!

Thanks for reading. And remember, your mistakes make you beautiful!
