Bee Craftivity

I know it's December and bees are probably not on your mind. But I thought I would share a bee craft that we do in our classroom each year. Our classroom is decorated with bees so these hang on our clips all year long. I know it doesn't work for December but you can pin it for later.
 First you start with a chubby water bottle. We wrapped them in tape paper. Then we used yellow and black tissue paper to cover the bee and lots of modge podge.Or watered down Elmers glue. Some of the students made yellow faces. Others made black faces. They need to dry for at least 24 hours. Then we added googly eyes. and an antenna.


I have to give full credit to Shelley D.  for this idea. She is so crafty!

  1. Cute! I had a bee theme in my room for the last five years (just switched over to polka dots this year). The kids look like they are having fun making it. :)

  2. Those little bees are a hoot! I would have never thought of using a water bottle as the base. Thanks for sharing this adorable idea! :)

  3. Cute bees! I'm not familiar with tape paper. Could you give a little more detail on that and ring (looks like a key ring) attached to their backs, presumably for hanging? Thanks for the pictures!
