Hi Friends! It’s Day 3 of “Just Add Confetti’s 10 Days of Kids Valentines!” Today, I’m sharing our Hedgehog Kids Valentine! My kids absolutely love the little hedgehogs from the movie Ferdinand. I mean, how can you not?!? They are so funny and sweet! This valentine is totally inspired by those little cuties. The step-by-step instructions are below. Also, in case you missed either of our first two days of the series — be sure to check out Day 1 and Day 2! I don’t want you to miss any of the freebies and fun ideas!
To make this Hedgehog Kids Valentine you will need the hedgehog free printable (located in the printable library—more info at the bottom of this post) as well as any small toy ball you would like, scissors and an xacto knife. Mini Koosh balls and small bouncy balls work really well!
To assemble this Hedgehog Kids Valentine, follow these 4 steps:
Step 1: First, download the free printable (located in the printable library). The printable PDF file contains editable fields for the message and name. Open the PDF in Adobe Reader and click where it says “Happy Valentine’s Day! Your Friend, Sawyer” and type the message and name you would like to include. Then, click “save” and print.
Step 2: Next, cut out the entire perimeter of the Hedgehog.
Step 3: Then, based on the size of the toy ball you will need to cut an opening in the center of the Hedgehog printable. For a smaller bouncy ball I found that the “starburst” cut worked well. You might also want to apply a piece of tape on the back to secure the ball more fully.
Step 4: For a mini koosh style ball I think using an xacto knife to carefully cut two holes in the center of the printable would work best. Then use a twist tie or piece of twine to hold the ball in place.
