How To Make A Craft Stick Bumble Bee:

Not only is this bee craft a great way to celebrate the beginning of Spring, but it’s a creative project to add to your bee or insect unit. Creating crafts can also be a fun way for kids to develop their fine motor skills, hand and eye coordination, muscle strength, and much more. These are important because when your kids have strong developmental skills, it will help them be able to hold a pencil, write, and even turn pages in a book.

While the paint is drying, cut the flat part of a clean, plastic milk jug out. Next, draw a wing shape onto cardstock and cut out. Then, trace the wing shape onto the plastic and cut out. After cutting the wing out, repeat the steps above but with a smaller wing shape. You will want to reverse the wing shape for the other side of the bee.
