Cheerful Creatures

"Cheerful Creatures!"

I remember growing up and getting one of these little pom-pom guys from my 1st grade teacher.  I think they were called warm fuzzies or love bugs.  I was inspired to make my own version when I saw them again on Amanda's blog, called the Teaching Chick."

I do a lot with my 4th graders and the book called "How  Full is your Bucket," and being a happy, positive person, so I knew I had to call my little fuzzy guys, "Cheerful Creatures!"  

The sparkly pom-poms were so soft!  I cut the felt out in a heart shape, and then hot glued on the wiggly eyes, antennas, and heart-shaped feet.  I decorated a container I bought from the Container Store, and typed up a little sign and description that I put inside the jar.

They are so cute to look at.  I am excited to hand them out to my students that are showing our 7 virtues and being "bucket-fillers."

I think I like so much too, because they remind me of "Marcel the Shell."  I will try and link up the video of that on my post too.  It is so funny!  Have fun making them!

    1. Thanks Jen. Maybe you could cut little felt triangles for ears/beak, and a oval for their tummy. :) Those would be so cute. I have a Beach theme in my room, but Owls could be at the beach right? jk ;)
