Use it for a lesson on bees

Bees can have a slightly bad reputation because they sting (which hurts!). But the honey bees of the world pick up the pollen of flowers and spread it. Which allow plants, including many crops, to reproduce, which in turn gives us food! Work in this bee craft into your bee lesson.

Supplies to make the bee craft

You don’t need many supplies to build the bee craft. These supplies are suggested but all are not needed depending on how far you take/expand upon the bee project.

  • Plain white paper (or card stock for a thicker feel) to print the bee printable.
  • Crayons, markers, colored pencils or paint (if you choose the black & white version and wish to color).
  • Glue stick, paste or tape to attach the bee parts together.

If you want to give your bee craft a more 3d feel, use the below supplies to make your bee stand out more.

Print the bee printable and use it as a template to enhance your bee using the below supplies:

  • Black pipe cleaners (attach these to the bees head to give your bee larger antennae or even use one for a stinger).
  • Paper plate (to color a bee hive for your bee or to paste your finished bee on as a background).
  • Tissue paper to make little wings for your bee.
  • Use pom-poms as an added touch for the flower pieces
