What is it about bugs that children just love learning about and playing with them? I’m not sure I see the attraction, but kids will never fail to turn over rocks and ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over what they find.
There are definitely some bugs I can rally behind — butterflies, ladybugs, and bees. Why? Because their beautiful colors mean you can make really cute crafts involving these bugs!
I’ve collected over 25 bee crafts for your little ones to make, and the bright shades of yellow and black will have everyone smiling!
Take a look at the ideas below and then let me know which one is your favorite. I think my favorite is a tie between the honeycomb craft with bees made from Kinder Surprise eggs and the clay bee tic-tac-toe game.
Kids will be buzzing all week over this list of 25+ bee crafts!
Make some honeycomb using cardboard tubes and then add some bees. These bees are made using black pipe cleaners and the yellow capsules inside of a Kinder Surprise egg! (This site is in Italian, but you can right click to translate it or just follow photos.)
If you’re a honey-lover, this should make you excited! It is Honey Bees vs Flowers in this cute tic tac toe game. This is an incredibly cute craft and makes for a lovely gift too. This is one of my favorite clay projects for kids ever!
