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!
