Buzzzzzz Says the Bumble Bee

We have left the Butterflies behind & moved along in our Insect theme to Bees!

I still have some Butterfly things left to share/post but I had to jump into our Bee craft because it was too cute & needs to be shared.

Book:


This was a cute book & the girls really enjoyed it. It is about a (girl) bee who reads in a newspaper that bees can not fly due to their large bodies. She believes it to be true - so she stops being able to fly.

Craft: Toilet Paper Roll Bumble Bee


What You Need:
Toilet Paper Roll
Yellow Paint
Paint Brushes
White Construction paper
Wiggly Eyes
Black Tape (you can also use paint)
Black Pipe Cleaner
Glue - we used tacky glue
Black Marker

What To Do:

1. Paint the TP roll in yellow & let dry (we did this on one day and finished the craft the next day)


2. cut the black pipe cleaner in half and make a v shape to form antenna - glue or staple to the inside of top of TP roll


3. Add wiggly eyes (or just draw them on) and paint on face using black marker


4. Using your black tape help child cut strips (make sure they aren't too long) and arrange to make stripes on the bee



5. Using white construction paper (fold in half) cut out wing shape and glue to back side of bee.


 You will have an adorable TP bee that can be proudly displayed!


Have you made any bee crafts? We have a few more bee related things to do & I am always looking for great ideas so I'd love for you to share!

  8. Catching up on neglected links! Thanks for linking up at Feed Me Books Friday! I really like the book's suggestion of not being told by others what you are capable of. We'll have to look for this one!
