Cute and easy – this is how a Valentine craft should look like, right? This Valentine bee craft has it all. It comes with a simple template created especially for little hands to cut out and glue. And it is simply adorable! I particularly like how the wings turned out. And also look at those big, beautiful eyes!
We have created a Bee mine! craft and a footprint Valentine bee card before but there are so many ways to create a Valentine’s Day bee that I’m sure we will be able to add even more bees to our collection of Valentine crafts.
This makes a really fun craft to make in the classroom or at home with your kids on Valentine’s Day. While it is great for preschoolers and kindergartners, older kids will enjoy the Bee mine! craft too.

HOW TO MAKE A VALENTINE BEE CRAFT
The Valentine bee 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.
