Two easy, fun crafts for little ones


Mice Guys

Open your heart to a cutie-pie mouse puppet -- or make a pair to share with a friend.

For each, cut a heart and an oval from felt. Cut an 8-inch length of bulky yarn and knot one end. Apply tacky glue along one edge of the heart. Add a dot of glue for the tail. Place the unknotted end of the yarn on the dot of glue, then fold the heart in half. Cover the heart with waxed paper and a heavy book and let the glue dry.

With a craft knife (adults only), make a small slit for the ears and a longer slit for the finger "feet" as shown, cutting through both layers of the folded felt. Slip the oval through the ear holes. Add black bead eyes and a pom-pom nose with tacky glue.

Puppy Love
Let Rover wear his big heart on his collar this Valentine's Day. Simply cut a large heart from craft foam.

Cut two slits in the heart wide enough for your dog's collar. Weave the collar through the heart as shown and put it on your pooch.
