This heart bee craft is both a craft and a super cute Valentines day card kids can easily make.
You can make this craft to be “true to” bee’s colors or you can make it even more Valentinesy by changing the natural colors to reds, pinks and purples.
January and February are both great months to plan out your Valentines day crafts, as well as cute cards that students will either exchange or give to their parents.
Heart shaped animal crafts are easy and fun for kids to make, and if by any chance you are teaching a lesson on shapes, these crafts compliment that lesson perfectly.
In this tutorial we are going to show you how you can make an adorable heart bee craft / card, that’s made out almost entirely out of hearts.
What you need
- our printable template (optional)
- yellow construction paper
- black construction paper
- light blue construction paper
- black marker
- googly eyes (optional)
Alternatively you can also color in the template and you won’t need the color construction paper.
Step by Step Tutorial
Start by tracing the two joined hearts on yellow construction paper.
Also trace the single big heart on construction paper (for a small be you only need 1).
Also trace the two small hearts on yellow paper (younger kids can skip this step).
Trace the big single heart on light blue paper two times.
Trace the same big heart on the black construction paper two times.
Fold the yellow paper – the two joined hearts” in half. This will be the card base, as well as the bee’s head.
Stick the black heart under the bee’s head, followed by one yellow heart and again black heart.
You could do more than 3, but we think 3 looks the sweetest.
Stick two light blue hearts, one on each side of the body.
Draw a face (or add googly eyes).
