With spring here, this is a great activity for kids to do, with little parental help. They can use the same technique for making other insects, if they don't like bees.
egg carton cups
black and yellow paint
2 or more googly eyes
red construction paper
Cut off one egg holder from its carton and paint it yellow.
Next, use the black paint to make stripes and a face for the bee. Also, use the white pipe cleaner to create wings for the bee. You can use the black pipe cleaner to make a stinger for the back.
Use glue to attach each piece to the egg carton you painted, and your bee is finished!
