Paper Plate Bee
You can make a paper plate bee easily with your kids this summer. For this craft you will need a paper plate, construction paper, scissors, markers, and glue. Start this craft by helping kids cut shapes from the construction paper. A triangle for the tail, two tear drop shapes for wings, and two circles for eyes should be cut from the paper.
Then help kids color the paper plate with yellow and black markers to look like a bee. Help kids glue the eyes, wings, and tail on the bee, and this bee themed summer craft is complete.
Egg cartons make excellent bee themed crafts for kids this summer. For this summer craft you will need an egg carton, glue, markers, wiggly eyes, scissors, and a pipe cleaner. Start by helping kids cut apart the sections of the egg carton. Also cut two small heart shapes from the egg carton to make wings.
Then glue one section on top of the other to create a bee body. Color the body yellow and black like a bee. Also color the hearts to make wings. Help kids cut two small sections from the pipe cleaner and glue them to the top of the bee like antennae. Glue the wiggly eyes to make a face, and add the wings last. When the entire recycled craft has dried, your kids can play with the awesome little bee.
A simple recycled craft using a cardboard tube is a fun way to create a bee with your kids. For this craft you will need a cardboard tube, markers, construction paper, pipe cleaners, and scissors.
Start by helping kids color the tube with black and yellow zigzag lines. Make sure to add eyes to the end of the recycled tube. Then cut wings out of construction paper by cutting a long rectangle. Fold the rectangle in half, and trim the ends of the paper in a curve to simulate wings. Glue the wings to the tube where the paper is folded and add four small pieces of pipe cleaner to the bottom of the tube like legs.
