This is a great project for beginners.  It helps teach basic cutting and tracing skills as well as writing.  It is a project ideal for Valentine’s, Mother’s and Father’s Day or any day you want to show that you love someone.

You will need the following supplies to complete the project:

  • Construction paper in the colors of your choice
  • Markers, crayons or colored pencils
  • Glue or tape
  • Scissors
  • Yarn in your choice of color
  • A pencil
