This week during art, we were making pictures from shapes. After playing around with hearts, Austin decided that hearts would be the perfect shape to make a card for Aunt P.
We talked about all the things we could try to make. We played with a shapes we had cut out. It is truly amazing just how much your imagination can take you places. I love this part of homeschooling. I enjoy seeing their brains work, their imaginations and creativity soar!
We tried to make all kinds of animals. We couldn’t quite decide, we made a really adorable fish (which I will soon share) but in the end we decided on a bumble bee.
You only need a few simple items…but remember if you are allowing a child to use scissors, only do so with supervision.
- White cardstock
- Black and yellow cardstock or construction paper (or print off this template for one, or this for two)
Fold the white cardstock in half touching the top to the bottom. Use a flat object to glide along the bend to create a flat crease.
Starting at the bottom, glue a black heart to the center of the paper. Alternate the yellow and black, overlapping each one.
Then glue the wings to each side to the center black heart.
Next are the mini hearts on the antenna. Glue them above the head and then use a black marker to connect them to the head.
Now you can add your saying. We looked online to see what cute BEE sayings we could find.
Austin loved the saying,
“I love you…Bee cause…”
