Bee Craft Idea

If you’ve never helped your kids make a homemade card for someone special in their life (especially grandparents!), you’re missing out!

Everyone appreciates the time a child puts into a handmade gift and DIY cards are some of the easiest to make.

On top of that, they’re cheap and require only a few common household supplies!

Supplies

Directions

Download the bee template, print and cut out the pieces.

Use scissors or a paper trimmer to cut out two long, thin rectangles to serve as the bee’s antennae. Glue one on each side of the bee’s head, on the backside of the card.

Making This Craft In The Classroom

Because there are not many steps, this craft is perfect for doing with a group of kids!

Make sure you download the free printable template (enter your email in the form at the end of this page to get your copy) and print out the template that has all the same piece on one page.

When you use this version of the template, you’ll print it directly on the colored paper that you need. This way you won’t have to deal with cutting out a template, tracing it onto paper, then cutting it out a second time.

It’s such a time saver!

If you are making this bee craft with younger kids and want to cut down on steps you can also skip the paper stripes.

Instead, have them color on the stripes with a black marker. This will save a few steps and they’ll be working on hand-eye coordination!

And, if you’d like a “regular” craft and not a card, simply cut out the bee body shape on a flat piece of paper instead of folding it!
