BEE mine Valentine craft

Sharing is caring!

Ask someone to be your Valentine with a sweet BEE mine Valentine craft. All kids have to do is use the template, cut out the patterns and glue together the heart bee. You can draw also your own bee template or make a footprint bee card.

Bees are fun and easy to create with kids. We made a paper plate bee a few years ago. If you add heart wings to that one you can easily turn it into a Valentine’d Day craft.

Easy Valentine bee craft for kids

This BEE mine Valentine craft can be made as a classroom art project or can be made to give away as Valentines. It will definitely be more creative and unique than any store-bought Valentine. But I can also see kids not willing to make so many bees as to have one for each of their classmates. That’s why this year we’re going for these super easy monoprint heart cards for my boys.

How to make a BEE mine Valentine craft


The BEE mine Valentine template comes with two versions:

1. home template – print the template, cut out the patterns and trace them on appropriate paper.

2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.

This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.

STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS FOR HOME CRAFTING

Print the home template. Cut out the patterns and trace them on construction paper.

To make the BEE mine Valentine craft you will need: 2 yellow circles (one for the body and one for the head), 2 black antenna (each antenna is made of 1 black circle and 1 black strip), 2 white big hearts, 2  red small hearts, 2 black stripes and 1 black stinger.

Bee body

Let’s start by putting together the bee’s body. Glue the two stripes onto the body.

Bee stinger

Add the stinger at the bottom of the body.

Bee antenna

Glue the two black paper strips to the other yellow circle. We will finish the antenna once the bee is glued to the paper as it will be easier.

Bee mine!

Print the BEE mine! message on card stock paper. Chose a Valentine color like red, pink or purple. Glue the bee’s body onto the card stock paper, right above the message. Add the head on top of the body, slightly overlapping.
