Originally, this was a Valentine activity. But why not let someone know that they rock your world any day of the week?!
Using construction paper in the color of your choice, cut out a heart about 5 1/2 inches in diameter (A). This will be your guitar’s body. Cut out another heart in a different color to fit inside (with about a one inch margin around) (B). This will become your guitar’s sound hole. To create the guitar’s neck, cut out a 9 X 2 inch piece of construction paper (C). To create the headstock (top of the guitar), cut out a heart about 3 1/2 inches in diameter (D). Cut out another heart to fit inside (E).
Glue the neck (C) to the back of the large heart (A) and the headstock heart (D). Glue the sound hole heart (B) inside the middle of the large heart (A). With a marker, draw 6 strings from the bottom of the big heart (A) to the middle of the top heart (D). Draw frets across the neck of the guitar, all the way down. Using the last heart (E), glue over the string lines in the top heart. Create tuners by drawing 3 small hearts on each side of the headstock heart (D).
Yes, it sounds complicated but look at the pictures and it becomes very clear. Now rock someone’s world with love!
Until next time…
