I love reading all the Valentine cards that my daughters bring home from school. My girls are always so eager to see who wrote “love” and who didn’t…giggling away. Over the years my girls have made some cute Valentine cards…you might remember our potato stamp, bookmark card from a couple of years ago. I try and get my daughters to help me brainstorm what we make. Last year, we had been talking about bees…specifically the decline of Canada’s bee population. Bees were on our minds. So, it was no surprise that our kid made valentine card choice was to make sweet little bees…won’t you bee mine?
Kid Made Valentine Card – Bee Mine
parchment paper or velum paper
markers, pencil crayons, crayons
white craft glue
First, we traced a small egg shape (the bee body) on the card stock. We traced as many bee bodies as we needed for our child’s class. Then, the kids cut out all the bee bodies…okay, I cut most of the bodies out…but they did a lot of them.
Finally, we made the wings by cutting a heart out of the parchment paper. Once the hearts were all cut out, we folded them in half…this way the wings will look like 2 wings that flutter off the bee body. We glued the wings to the bee bodies and waited for them to dry.
These cute little bees made me smile.
