With all these valentines crafts we’re really feeling the love in this house today! Now I get to share with you one of my personal favourites. How sweet is this paper plate valentines bee? when it comes to valentines day you can’t beat a handmade gift with a cheesy pun attached and this craft doesn’t disappoint.
You will need
Paper plate Black, white and grey paper Yellow paint A pen Scissors Glue
First you will need to cover your paper plate in yellow paint and then put it aside to dry.
Next cut out several hearts from your black paper. Glue them down on your plate in two rows to create your bumble bee’s stripes.
To make the stinger; cut out a large black heart and glue it with the point facing outwards on the tail end of your Bee.
Now for the wings. Draw around your little one’s hands and cut out the handprints. Stick the handprints together at a slight angle as shown above and then glue them to the back of your paper plate.
Give your bumble bee an eye by sticking down a white circle and then a smaller black circle for the pupil. Use your pen to draw on his mouth and then finish off by adding your special valentines message!
If you've followed the blog at all you will know that my son is mad about all things under the sea. He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish

I think though that these pipe cleaner snail magnets are my favourite of the day. They're just so adorable and once you get the hang of them they're really easy to make too. We have a whole garden full of them on our fridge right now!
