Bee Craft

When the honeycomb for kids 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.
