How to Make a Bumble Bee Bookmark
Let’s start a buzz with our bee crafts for kids! Enjoy reading and use this bee bookmark to keep your place. Watch your child show a greater interest in their books and reading activities when they have one of these.
- Foam paper
- Popsicle sticks
- Googly eyes
- Your hands and this guide!
Take a piece of yellow foam, and black foam. Cut a oval out of the yellow. This will be your bee's body.
Cut out a circle out of the black. This will be your bee's head. Finally, cut out three strips from the black, for your bee stripes.
Glue the three strips onto the bee body. Set aside to dry.
Glue your googly eyes onto the bee's head. Allow this to dry.
Once the body part is dry, trim the edges off the strips so they match up to the body.
Push two small pieces of pipe cleaner through the bee head, above the eyes. These will be your antennae.
Curl both of the pipe cleaners.
Glue your head onto the body.
Take a white piece of foam and cut out a heart shape. At the bottom of the heart cut it straight.
Glue your wings on the back of your bumble bee. Place the popsicle stick in between the wings and bee.
Make as many of these as you wish. Keep them for different books or give them as gifts to friends!
Your bookmark will be all the buzz with our bee crafts for kids!!
You could also turn these bee crafts for kids into magnets instead of bookmarks. It’s as simple as not adding a popsicle stick and putting a magnet on the back.
Another idea is to use your bookmark as a puppet! My little girl always sticks a popsicle stick onto the end of all her paper crafts and uses them in this way! We have lots more ideas for puppets for kids here on this child friendly site!
