Make a friend smile by giving them a “Thank you for Bee-ing My Friend!” kindness card. This is a fun craft to make and one that is sure to make anyone’s day better!
Bee Footprint Kindness Card
This bee footprint card requires only a few materials:
- Yellow paint
- Black card stock
- Googly eyes
- Wax paper
- Card stock for the card
Start by making an adorable footprint of your child’s foot with the yellow paint. Let the paint dry. Cut black strips and glue them across the width of the footprint. These will become the bee’s stripes.
Cut a black triangle to use as the bee’s stinger. Children can cut these strips to work on scissor skills. Placing the black strips evenly is a great eye-hand coordination activity as well.
Glue the googly eyes to the top of the bee. Cut wings from the wax paper and tuck them under the footprint. Glue them in place.
Of course, we had to make an adorable fingerprint version of our bee as well!
Once the bee craft is done, cut it out and glue onto card stock paper, folded into a card. Add details like the fingerprint bee and write “Thank you for Bee-ing my friend!”
Give your card to a friend and watch them smile! It’s a sure way to pass on a little kindness.
