Not all craft projects need to be a long and drawn out production. Many times children enjoy crafts that are quick and easy. This sweet and simple funny faces craft is the perfect solution if you are in the market for a fun, frugal, and fast Valentine’s Day craft. This craft does more than make a cute final product, it allows children to utilize their final motor skills. Take a look at how easy they are to make with just a few simple dollar store supplies!
Assorted paper doily hearts
Assorted pom poms
We were able to find all of the supplies we needed at our local dollar store. Our total cost for supplies was around $5, and we were able to buy enough for many of these funny faces! These would make a great classroom craft, or a craft that your child can enjoy over and over.
1. Begin by giving your funny face some eyes. Choose two googly eyes and attach them with glue to the top of the face.
2. Next, give your funny face a nose. Use a colored pom pom in the color of your choice. Add a dab of glue to it and press it to the center of the face.
3. Your funny face will need a mouth, so use a heart sticker and place it at the bottom of the face for some pouty lips.
You can leave your funny face as is, or add pipe cleaners for arms if you wish. You can even add a special note so the maker can give this as a Valentine if they wish. Either way, it is a simple craft that children will enjoy creating and your budget will support too!
Head to your local dollar store and grab the makings to give this DIY project a try. It’s a fun and festive way to practice fine motor skills and make a fun piece of Valentine’s Day décor.
