Give a Hug Card


Sometimes less is more. Hugs say I love you to close family members. In this activity, kids make cards to give with the hug that say: Here is a present from me -- a HUG!

  • Start with paper in the shape of a triangle, long side along bottom.
  • Fold in the outside corners to create two "hugging arms."
  • Attach a head at the top point; have students decorate their heads.
Voila! -- a hug card.
