We just discovered that we have a hive of bees living in our porch. Every day for the past few weeks, the bees have been buzzing around our heads as we are outside playing.

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:

Cardboard

Acrylic Paint

Yarn

Googly Eyes

Pipe Cleaners

Tacky Glue

Markers

Directions:

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.

  1. Aw, what a cute yearn craft. And I can tell you that my older daughter loved bees when she was younger from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse’s Buzz-Buzz Bee episode, which was totally her favorite episode, because of it. You just totally brought me back reminded me of that with this craft 🙂
