へのへのもへじ is the name given to a Japanese face drawn using Japanese hiragana characters, made popular by Japanese school children.
However, it is not necessary to use only those characters. Any characters can be used to create the face.

This face is へめへめもこも

What characters can you find in this face?

And of course, the faces do not necessarily have to be human! Try to recognise all the characters in this cat.

Try to work out what characters have been used to draw these cats.

After you have finished the face, you can add hair to make your face even more realistic

You can change the shape of the characters and add things, such as eyes!

Then it's time to add a body to your character.

へのへのもへじ is a fun way of creating cartoon characters!
