Keeping with our springtime and insect theme, this week we made bees out of throw-away bowls. I saw the basic idea at DLTK crafts.
We started our bees by painting paper bowls yellow
Maybe it is the "messy" factor".
It took patience, but they got the job done.
Phew! That is a job well done, Kim!
After the paint on the bowls dried, I outlined stripes to be colored in with black marker. Kim and Luke just turned 3 and 4 so I gave them the outline, but the older kids easily did this step on their own.
Add a triangle stinger, wiggle eyes and draw on a mouth. We also used pipe cleaners to make antennea.
