Who wants to transform a pine cone into a buzzing bee?! I always go to my local forest and collect pine cones for crafts for my children. In December we made pine cone Christmas trees and in the spring summer months we make bees!
This easy bee craft lets you make a beehive (tell your kids that is where bees live when they are not busy pollinating flowers).
There is a free template provided that helps you complete this simple craft!
I hope you enjoy my list of Bumble bee craft ideas! I do plan on adding some more of these as soon as I get them written up!
Which is your favorite bee craft for kids from my collection? Do you have any more suggestions that I can add?
You can use these for pretend play or just for fun!
Bee Craft Preschool
Some of my friends have specifically asked me for bee crafts for 3 year olds as they want to teach them all about this popular insect at an early age.
One of my favorite preschool bee craft ideas involves painting, because that’s what all little children of this age want to do! They love getting their hands messy!! Let little ones use their fingerprints dipped in yellow and black paint to make this buzzing insect!
Another great suggestion is to provide them with either a paper or cardboard beehive shape for decorating with yellow and black paper. This is a good exercise for fine motor skills as it encourages kids to apply glue to paper before sticking it onto the shape.
Whenever you finish these I have lots more animal crafts to keep you busy:-
