Directions:

First have your child pick a foot and paint it completely yellow. Press it down in the center of a single sheet of cardstock.

To give your Footprint Bee life– grab your remaining paint and have children paint on some fun bee features to their stamped footprint. Think wings, antennas, a smiling face and of course those iconic black stripes! Set aside to let it dry completely.

Next grab another sheet of cardstock and fold it in half. Set aside. Now grab your footprint bee and trim around it so you can glue it to your new card front.

To finish it off, add some scrapbook stickers to the front of the card that say “BEE MINE.” Then write a sweet message inside, slip in an envelope and mail away! Don’t forget to add your child’s name and age on the back of the card, so the lucky receiver will remember forever when it was made!
