Hand & Foot Print Bumble Bee

Bee & Me - this is such an adorable book! My girls loved it and I can see little kids just wanting to read this one over & over again especially if you get the ani-motion version like we did. It has a little bee that moves but this isn't just a gimmicky book. The story is very well told and you are sure to learn lots about what bees do and it might even inspire some moral lessons along the way! We really enjoyed this one.

Craft: Hand & Foot Print Bumble Bee

What You Need:
Yellow, Black & White Paint
Blue Construction Paper
Black marker

What To Do:
1. paint child's foot yellow & press onto blue construction paper - this will be the bee's body

2. Paint hand white and press onto side of foot to make wing - repeat on each side

This is what your bee will look like: (let dry)

3. Add black stripes onto footprint (body)

4. Using marker add antenna, eyes, etc. - you can also use wiggly eyes and pipe cleaners if desired

Isn't that a cute lil bee? Plus, it's made of the best stuff - your lil one's precious hands & feet! :) LOVE it!
