Bee My Valentine Craftivity

So, I have been missing doing creative craft projects for my students. (I don't get to do them anymore.) I decided to be creative and make some for my theme files. My students always enjoyed doing these activities and it allowed them to work on their fine motor skills. Here is the front cover of the envelope of the craftivity, as well as, the back with the directions. I usually place both of these sheets on an envelope and laminate it. Then, all of my tracers go inside.
 
 
 
Here is a picture of the envelope and some of the tracers. I generally trace them onto a file folder or print them onto tag board and cut them out. This allows for durability, especially with so many little hands touching the pieces.
 
Here is the finished products. I created to versions in different colors. The first one is a Yellow and Black Bee with Red wings and accents. You can have your students choose different colors for Valentine's Day for the wings and accents.
 

 This verison is solely with Valentine's colors. I chose pink, purple, and red.
 Aren't they cute? There are so many variations that can be done with the colors. The craftivity includes front cover, directions, dimensions page, tracers, and even pictures of my examples. You can purchase the "Bee My Valentine" Craftivity from my TPT store by clicking on the picture below.
 
 
I had a little bit of an Oopsy Daisy moment when I created this Freebie. I accidently misspelled "Arctic" so I have redone it and it is ready for redownload. If you downloaded it before you can redownload it again by clicking below or if you are new and would like it just click below.
 
 
 
I hope everyone is having a great day. Enjoy!

Your bee is just adorable! I'm like you...I miss doing crafty-type stuff with my kiddos. I actually sometimes feel guilty that I don't do that kind of stuff more often. You're right...there are many important skills kiddos get from doing crafty stuff. It's sad that we feel the pressure to NOT do them!

Arctic is still spelled incorrectly in the animal names on the pages... I hope you can fix these because it is a cute book. :)

Something happened where it didn't save properly in dropbox the first time. I fixed it and triple checked it. It is ready for download. :)
