After you have printed your template, cut out the shapes and trace them on your gray, pink and white card stock paper. Then cut out those shapes.
Glue on your hippo craft’s teeth to the long tube shape.
We do this step first so we are able to position the teeth evenly.
Then slide those big chompers in and set aside to dry.
Now, with your two pink hearts, glue them individually to the circles. These will be your Valentine’s Day Hippo’s ears.
After your ears had time to dry, glue them on top of your heart.
Now all that is left is to add his eyes and cute heart nostrils!

I like this version best. While I am working to use it as a template for our card stock paper, my daughter can color her own to keep in her collection. Once complete then cut them out and glue him together.
