Bee Mine Kindergarten Craft

Today we’re putting together an adorable classroom craft the kindergarteners are gonna LOVE to do for their Valentine’s Day party.

Supplies you’ll need:
Clean empty milk cartons, black pipe cleaners, red construction paper, and our Bee stickers.

1. Collect empty milk carton containers from the cafeteria. Be sure to rinse out thoroughly and let dry completely.
