Busy Bee Craft


Need a quick and easy craft for the spring and summer seasons? Here is a fun idea sent to us by Nikkie at Apple Tree Academy that your students will buzz over!

This cute, little bee craft is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Here is what you will need:

Yellow, Black and White Construction Paper; Glue or Glue Sticks; Markers; Scissors


Depending on the age of your students, you can either let them prepare their own bee pieces or you can have them ready to go before they start. You will need a yellow oval, 4 or 5 black rectangles and 1 white heart. The yellow oval will be the body, the black rectangles will represent the black stripes and the white heart will be the wing.

Begin by having the students write their name on the back of the oval. Next, they can begin gluing on the pieces. First the stripes and then the wing. We encourage you to allow students to place the stripes however they would like. It allows for a look that will be a little different with each child’s imagination.

Now it’s time to add on the other details. Have students take a marker and give their bee an eye, a happy smile, and six legs. 

Now you have a fun and friendly bee for a quick spring or summertime craft!
