“Be Mine” Bumblebee Valentine Craft

Ages: 3+

Time: 15-20 minutes

Materials:

Directions:

  1. To help your little one with this craft, just print the bumblebee and cut the pieces out. Older kids can even do this part themselves.
  2. By using a dab of glue here and there, piece the bee back together. We used this time to identify the different body parts of the bee.
  3. Don’t worry if the bee’s stripes aren’t exact, or his wings are a little off-kilter. That’s what makes each bee unique and so much fun to see when it’s completed.
  4. Once he is assembled, glue a couple of googly eyes on the top. No googly eyes? No problem! Just draw some eyes on with your markers!
  5. After we finished, we decided to add a little sparkle by adding some black glitter to his stripes. This part is entirely optional, so if you’re not a glitter fan, don’t worry about using it!

Try the “bee mine” craft with tissue paper!

Do you want to try another fun spin on this bumblebee valentine craft? Print out our free printable, and follow all of the steps above.

Then, tear pieces of yellow and black tissue paper. Crumple the paper into tiny balls to glue in place on the yellow and black areas of the bee for a 3-D effect! This is a great way to work on hand-eye coordination, and makes it easier for children who have a hard time cutting and might want a break from it. Plus, what kid doesn’t like tearing paper? It’s fun!

Or try it with felt!

To use felt, print our free printable onto cardstock, and then use it as a stencil. Trace the pieces onto yellow and black crafting felt, and then have the adult use a hot glue gun to glue the pieces together!

Making Valentine Crafts At Home Is Fun and Easy!

Some of my favorite mommy memories, and hopefully my kids’ favorite memories,  have come from crafting for different holidays, as a family. Valentine crafts are really special, because it’s the perfect time to talk about love with my little ones. Leading by example, teaching them to care about the people around them, and to show it with a simple, heartfelt, handmade gesture… It’s beautiful.
