Heart and Circle Animal Pictures

A few years ago I made a heart pattern busy bag.  We still have that busy bag, and pull it out around Valentine’s every year.  This year I thought I would build on that idea and turn it from a simple pattern maker to creating heart and circle animal pictures.

Make sure you follow my Valentine’s board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To create your own heart and circle animal pictures you will need:

  • Coloured paper
  • Card stock
  • Heart shaped hole punch (optional)
  • Circle hole punch (optional)
  • Glue
  • Coloured pencils

Start by cutting out your hearts and circles.  I used a circle and a heart hole punch for this part.  You can, of course, just cut them out by hand, but it is far quicker with the hole punches.

When you have enough hearts and circles, start to create your animals.

Before we stuck it down, we would try to make our animals.  Then when we were satisfied with them we glued them down.

Going clockwise we have YC’s shark, EC’s snake, BB’s work of art, and YC’s penguin.

I spent a while trying to make a shark, but ended up with a flying bird.  YC had the brilliant idea to make one face on rather than a side on view.  It was very ingenious.
