Instructions for Making this Bee Craft
1. Heat up your hot glue gun and gather your supplies. (Note: Adult supervision is required when children are using a hot glue gun.)
2. Glue your glitter poms onto your scoop stick in a yellow/black/yellow/black bee pattern. We used four 1-inch poms to fill our scoop stick. You could also do this with a craft stick and just a few additional poms.
3. Cut your black fuzzy stick to make two antennae. Use your hot glue gun to glue them at the top of your bee behind the first yellow glitter pom. Bend the ends of your antennae slightly.
4. Use your hot glue gun to glue your wiggly eyes onto your fuzzy bee craft.
5. Cut bee wings out of your wax paper. Use a hot glue gun (or tacky glue) to glue the wings onto the back of the scoop stick to finish your fuzzy bee craft.
