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.
