Honeycomb Craft - love this super cute 3D honeycomb craft for kids to learn about bees or celebrate National Honey Month, spring craft, or summer craft for kids toddler, preschool, prek, kindergarten, first grade.

With this craft, kids will learn how honeybees use individual hexagon cells to make their honeycomb shape that makes up their hives.

While making this craft, talk about how honeybees use wax and pollen to make their homes and store the honey to feed the queen, the baby bees, and the rest of the hive over the winter. Ask the kids to think about how honey growers have to make sure they aren't harvesting too much honey or it will kill the hive.

Kids will love making their very own 3D honeycomb craft. By making this craft, kids can learn a little bit about how honeycombs fit together with their distinct hexagon pattern.

You'll need just a few things to make your honeycomb craft:

  • Paper towel roll
  • Yellow paper
  • Black maker
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Cut the paper towel roll into 1/2 inch thick sections. Bend them in half, then bend them in half the other way to make a diamond shape.

Arrange the honeycombs in a beehive shape on the yellow paper. When you're satisfied with the design, glue them in place and let dry.

When the honeycomb is dry, draw little bees around the paper with the black marker. I chose to make little cute bees, but you can make them more realistic if you like.

This craft is the perfect thing to make when studying bees, hives, and how honey is made. Use it to go along with a honey bee unit study, when studying honey, or during National Honey Month (which is September). Talk about the importance of preserving bees so that we still can have delicious honey to eat and other fruits and vegetables that bees are responsible for pollinating.
