Read Cupid Doesn’t Flip Hamburgers. Use the book as a guide to make your Cupid character. (Boys might prefer to make Mr. Lovegood from Cupid DOES Eat Chocolate Covered Snails.)

  1. Dress your Cupid in a 6” dress cut from red paper.
  2. Cut a white apron 7” long. Fold up 1” on bottom for pocket.
  3. Glue the dress and apron on your character.
  4. Cut a small red heart from red paper and glue to the apron.
