'Bb' is for Bee {Craft}

I tried to find something fun to represent the letter 'Bb' for our preschool class and have to say that I am in love with this little bee.

I have to warn you though ~ if you use a foam sheet and a marker, the smudge factor will be involved. Fingertips will be black and marker color will spread like wildfire.

But the result is just so cute!! {dontcha think?}

What You'll Need:
  • Yellow foam sheet or construction paper
  • Black sharpie or marker
  • Wax paper
  • Googly eye
  • Black pipe cleaner
  • Glue
How to make the 'B' Bee:
  1. Cut an uppercase 'B' out of the foam sheet or construction paper. I used a foam sheet that was about 4" x 5" in size.
  2. Cut out two circles from the wax paper to use as wings for your bee. {I used one black, one wax paper so the wings would show up for the pictures}.
  3. Cut the pipecleaner into two pieces ~ one should be 1/3 of the length of the pipecleaner, the other 2/3 of the length.
  4. Poke the small pipecleaner through the bottom base of the 'B' to use as a 'stinger'.
  5. Poke the longer pipecleaner through the upper part of the 'B' to use as the bee's antennae.
  6. Have your child draw stripes on the B using the marker.
  7. Glue on the googly eye and wings.
