Story Time: The Hugsmiler’s: Hugs “A Story About Learning Values” by Jessica L. Simons
What you need:
White cardstock paper, whole puncher, 2 pipe cleaners, tape, 2 stick-on googly eyes, crayons or markers.
How to make a hug:
Step 1: Cut out a heart from white cardstock paper.
Step 2: Punch 2 holes on the side of the heart and 2 holes near the bottom.
Step 3: Color the heart with markers or crayons and add a smile.
Step 4: Use one pipe cleaner and pull it through the holes for arms. Use the second pipe cleaner and pull in through the holes for legs. Use a piece of tape on the back of your heart to make sure the pipe cleaners stay in place.
Step 5: Add googly eyes to your hug.
You can share your hug smiler with others or make one for a friend!
