  1. Love love love this simple but educational art craft. it was easy to explain to my kids and very colorful for our walls.

  2. THIS is a cute idea! I can do the same thing with my award-winning book HERE I AM by Susie TenEyck. Awesome. I would use construction paper for the ears or paint stiff white paper to match instead of using another paper plate. For my character, heart punchouts or jewels could be glued on for the nose! LOL. Love it! Thanks for the idea!
