Step 1: Cut Out Your Shapes!
Cut out a yellow circle, for the bee’s head! Then cut a large round shape for the body, making the bottom wider and with 2 finger holes. Cut 2 white wings! Then cut your antennae and a tiny triangle stinger!
Step 2: Get Gluing!
Glue the bottom of the back of the head and stick it on the body. Make sure the 2 finger holes are pointing towards the bottom. Then stick the wings onto the back of the body. Don’t forget the antennae and stinger!
Step 3: Draw!
Using your black early stART Safety Marker, draw black stripes across the bee’s body. Then draw details on the bee’s face! To finish off, colour in the antennas and stinger!
