Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday for kids. They love the tradition of giving and receiving Valentine’s Day cards from friends and loved ones, and it can also be a great opportunity to be creative. This fun bumble bee Valentine is easy to create and would be a great card to include with a teacher gift. It’s simple enough for a preschooler to create, but any age can make it their own.
Here’s what you need to create this adorable bee craft.
To begin, stack your black and white construction paper on top of each other and fold in half so that you have four layers of paper. Cut out two sets of hearts, each about half the size of the folded paper. This should give you four hearts of each color (you’ll only need three).
Using your glue stick, set two sets of the black and yellow hearts offset on top of one another to form the bee’s body. Then, take a yellow heart offset on top of a black heart to form the bee’s face.
Next, glue the bee’s face on top of/in front of the bee’s body and then draw a cute bee face on it.
Take your red construction paper, fold it in half and cut out two large red hearts to make bee wings.
Glue the wings onto the back of the bee with the points facing inward.
With leftover black and red construction paper, cut out some thin black rectangles and small red hearts to form the bee’s antennas.
Glue them together and then glue onto your bee’s head.
Glue your whole bee onto a sheet of white construction paper and then use your white gel pen to write a cute message on your bee’s bottom.
That’s it! A super adorable Valentine you or your child can gift to anyone you want! So cute and fun!
