There was one that lingered on our porch a few days ago & my daughter and I wanted to investigate a little. We watched it for a while as it rubbed its legs together and sat on our step.
Our little friend inspired a new craft. Since some of my daughter’s favorite crafts involve yarn, we decided on a yarn wrapping craft.
What you will need:
Draw & cut a bee shape out of cardboard. Don’t forget the stinger.
Paint the body of the cardboard yellow & the stinger black. Let dry. Make thin triangular snips into the cardboard on both the top & bottom of the body.
Glue a googly eye & 2 pipe cleaners for the antennae. Draw in a little smile.
Cut long strands of yarn & wrap the strands around the bee’s body at the notches.
My daughter carefully wrapped the yarn around her bee. This is a great activity for fine motor skills and like I said, my little girl loves yarn crafts.
We both thought our little bee came out adorable & it is less likely to sting us than its inspiration.
