Paper Valentine Animals to Make from Recycled Paper Tubes

This is a really cute Valentine project to do with the kids.  You can make any animal you want and paint it any fun color.  These are perfect for Valentine's Day with the hearts in the animal's mouths but this project can be for any time of the year.

Just collect a few empty paper tubes from paper towels and then all you really need is scissors and paint.  It's a super easy design, with the body and legs all one piece.  We made a giraffe, dog and cat but these would also be just as cute made into an elephant or pig.
