Instructions for making this fun bee craft

1. Start by cutting out the pieces you’ll need for your bee finger puppet. You’ll need a 2 1/2-inch circle, a 3-inch circle cut out of your yellow cardstock paper and 2 wing shapes cut out of your white cardstock paper.

2. Draw black stripes on your larger circle. Then use your 3/4-inch circle punch to cut out two holes at the bottom of it, in alignment with your black stripes.

3. Glue the smaller yellow circle onto the black-striped yellow circle, making sure the finger holes are at the bottom of the large circle. Then glue your white wings on the sides of your bee body.

4. Glue your googly eyes onto your face and use your pink marker to draw a smile. Lastly, fold your string in half to make a V and glue it onto the back of your bee head for antennae. You might want to add a piece of tape to help secure the antennae in place until your glue dries.
