Here’s a fun project idea for a Valentine’s Day Card exchange … make some cute “Bumblebee of Hearts” cards!
For younger preschoolers, we pre-cut heart shapes from black, yellow and wax paper (black heart should be smaller than yellow heart). If you have older preschoolers, you can have them use heart templates to trace and then cut out the hearts — or fold construction paper in half and draw a half heart shape along the fold.
Next, have children draw black lines on the yellow heart (like a bumblebee has). Using a glue stick, they can glue the yellow heart onto a piece of construction paper.
Then have them glue the black heart at the top of the yellow one (for the bee’s head). Glue on googly eyes. Lastly, take the wax paper heart and have them cut it in half and glue them on as the wings! It was a fun project to show them how you can use shapes to make other things.
And it also makes for a cute Valentine’s card … and you can use some cute titles like “Will you BEE my Valentine?” or “Let’s BEE friends!“
