For this craft you will need:

Step 2. Use both thumbs to press into the clay to create a heart shape.

Step 3. Use a tooth pick to create a whole at the top of the clay where the string will be threaded.

Step 4. Take a smaller handful of red clay and soften it with the heat from your hands. When it is soft enough, shape it in a flat circular shape, then mould it into the shape of a heart and place it into the white clay.

Remember to leave the clay to set and go hard for 24 hours!

For this craft you will need:

Step 1. To make the body, simply cut a heart shape out of the red card, leaving enough to create little heart shaped ‘hands’ and ‘feet. Then, cut your white card into long strips. Take the white strips and fold it over itself multiple times to create a concertina effect.

Step 2. Glue all your pieces together and finish off with some wiggly eyes and a big smile!
