Based on the book My Heart Is Like a Zoo by Michael Hall. Inspiration also came from Kay Leigh, Lisa Springer and her library staff, and Sarah Hay!
One of our volunteers was kind enough to cut out hearts for us at our local elementary school–the school has been generous enough to let us use their Ellison die cut machine. She folded a piece of construction paper in fourths and cut out the heart. When she unfolded everything, we ended up with a solid heart, another thin cut heart and a type of heart stencil. We used the heart type stencil for the border on this bulletin board. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
