Kids will love making this 3D honeycomb craft perfect for National Honey Month in September or just a fun spring or summer craft to learn about these important pollinators!
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
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.
