Bee Mine Valentine’s Day Craft for Kids
This simple craft is adorable and versatile! You could easily turn these Valentine bees into a spring/summer craft or a letter B craft by replacing the heart eyes with googly eyes and changing the wings. Let’s get started!
First, gather your simple, low-cost materials:
Time to Create!
To begin, cut the body and head for your bee from yellow paper. Cut two small heart-shaped wings from white paper.
Cut thin black strips from black paper and glue them onto the body of the bee. You could also have the kids draw the bee’s stripes using a black marker.
Use a heart craft punch to cut two heart-shaped eyes from the red paper. Glue them to the head of the bee.
