Bee Mine Valentine

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Kids' classmates will be abuzz with joy when they receive one of these lollipop-toting bumblebees.


  • Black and yellow pipe cleaners
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Yellow tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Colored card stock
  • Hole punch
  • Marker
  • Lollipops


Bee Mine Valentine - Step 1

Fold one 6-inch black pipe cleaner into a V shape.

Bee Mine Valentine - Step 2

Holding the other black piece alongside the yellow pipe cleaner, wrap both stems together around the V. Use the stems' entire length and be sure to leave a small gap at the folded end, where you'll slide in the lollipop stick. Bend back the ends of the V to form antennae.

Glue on googly eyes and yellow tissue paper wings.

Cut a heart shape from colored card stock. Punch two holes about an inch apart in the heart, then write "Mine" on it, plus any other message on the back. Then slide the bee onto the lollipop and slip the lollipop stick through the holes.


For two gifts in one, add a magnetic strip to the back of the bee so he can stick around after the lollipop is gone.
