Paper Plate Bee

Summer is in full swing. We have been spending as much time as possible outside, but lately, we have gotten a few rainy days. This little bee craft is the perfect craft to occupy little ones while they are stuck inside!

Materials Used

Paper Plate

Yellow Paint

Black Construction Paper

Googly Eyes



I started by giving my toddler the paper plate to paint yellow.

We let the paint dry for awhile, then I helped my little one to cut strips from the black construction paper. I saved a small amount of paper so I could cut out antennas.

Next, I helped her glue on the stripes and the googly eyes.

To finish this craft up, I flipped it over and helped my daughter glue on the antennas.
