February Quilt

The hand print quilt project for February is a heart shape using both hands to create the print.
Below the heart we included a heart themed poem.
Another project is a modification of the heart person. We used 2 cardboard tubes that I previously glued together. Each student cut out 2 hearts and glued one to the front of the tubes and one to the back of the tubes. We folded 4 strips of paper accordion style and attached them to the tubes as arms and legs.

We decorated one side with a whimsical face and added stickers for hands and feet.

Because they are 3 dimensional they stand on their own and make a fun addition to our quilt.
