Round up your nontoxic Original Tacky Glue, construction paper and a toilet paper roll, and you're ready to create a cute Valentine's Day craft that can be used for play or given as a special Valentine.What you need:
- Aleene's Original Tacky Glue
- Toilet paper roll
- Construction paper
- Googly eyes
This Valentine's Day craft only requires a few basic supplies with an adorable result! You'll want construction papers in yellow, black, white and pink (unless your child wants to get creative with their bee and make it totally different colors).
Cut a section of yellow paper to fit around the toilet paper roll, then cut three strips of black paper the same length as the yellow section. Glue them evenly spaced along the bottom of the yellow paper.
Glue the yellow section of paper around the toilet paper roll.
Cut two additional strips of black paper for the antennae. Draw two small hearts on the pink paper and cut out. Glue each one to the top of each antenna piece.
Glue the antennae to the backside of the toilet paper roll.
Trace your little one's hand two times on the white piece of paper and cut out.
Glue each handprint to the backside of the toilet paper roll to create wings.
Glue on googly eyes and draw a smile underneath with a marker. Let the bee dry completely, then it's ready to create some Valentine's Day buzz!
