Make this Bee Kind craft for Kindergarteners while reading these Fun Books:
Step 1: Get the Bee Printable Template
Download the Free Bee Craft Printable Template. You will be stapling the templates to sheets of colored paper and cutting out shapes up to 10 at a time.
Step 2: Staple and cut out the Bee shapes
Once you have the print outs, staple them to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5 sheets of construction paper.
That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better.
Tip: While you’re cutting, if you’ve cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left.
Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!
I will say, cutting out the antennae is a little tedious, just make sure you have at least 5-6 pieces of paper stapled together and you’ll have enough in no time!
Step 3: Cut out the word kind
Next, you will need to cut out the word kind. This is a little bit more difficult because you want to keep the printed shape for the craft.
You will need to print or copy the page with the word kind as many times as you need for the craft.
Again, you can staple them together and cut out multiple pieces at once. Just make sure you line the paper up perfectly before stapling.
Once the pages are stapled together, you should be able to cut out a bunch at once.
Step 4: How to Assemble your Bee Craft
- Glue the circle head onto the oval bee body.
- Glue the wings behind the top of the bee’s body.
- Glue the black triangle stinger to the back of the bee’s body.
- Glue the word “Kind” onto the middle of the bee’s body.
- If you’re not adding the word “Kind”, glue the plain black rectangle to the middle of the bee’s body.
- Glue the front stripe onto the bee. Make sure the angles at the end of the rectangle match the angles of the oval.
- Glue the back stripe onto the bee. Make sure the angles at the end of the rectangle match the angles of the oval.
- Glue the antenna behind the top of the bee’s head.
- Draw on the bee’s face.
- Don’t forget to write you’re name on the back!
