These construction-paper mice tote along lollipops, making them the perfect Valentine’s to give to pint-size suckers for love. 

What you’ll need: 

  • Heavy, red construction paper
  • Heavy, purple construction paper
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Flat lollipops
  • Hole punch
  • Pencil or pen

Since these cards are easily multiplied, they’re a good bet for classrooms and play groups.

How to make it

  • From red paper, cut out a bunch of hearts approximately 4 inches across. On each, draw and nose and eyes. 
  • Punch four holes above the mouse’s nose. Thread a short length of pipe cleaner through the top two holes and another through the bottom two. 
  • Lastly, slip and lollipop down behind the whiskers.
