B is for Bee Craft: Lately we have been working our way through our letter of the week crafts. While I am not personally a fan of focusing on one letter for an entire week, these simple crafts are a ton of fun for getting kids exploring letters.
There are many ways this craft can be done, so don’t feel like you have to follow these instructions to a T. We used construction paper when doing our craft because Meatball is all about working on his scissor skills. Other alternatives could be paint and cardstock, washi tape, or even glue and pom-poms.
Items Needed for an Uppercase B Craft:
- Construction Paper
Suggested Book: Magic School Bus: Inside a Beehive
How to Create Your B is for Bee:
1. Draw out an uppercase B using your sharpie.
2. Cut your shape out. An adult may need to do this. The easiest way to go about it is to punch a hole in the center and cut from there.
3. Glue your B onto a bright sheet of construction paper.
4. Cut out the stripes and antennas for you Bee.
5. Fit them to your letter and glue your Bee stripes down. Have kids count the stripes while they glue for some additional learning!
6. Have kids cut out circles for the top of the Bee’s antennas and glue them down.
And then hang up to display! These letter of the week crafts are awesome for creating your word wall!
B is for Bee Finger Plays and Songs:
Five Little Bees:
One little bee flew and flew.
He found a friend, and that made two.
Two little bees as busy as could be–
Along came another and that made three.
Three little bees wanted one more,
Found one soon, and that made four.
Four little bees, going to the hive,
Spied their little brother, and that made five.
Five little bees working every hour–
Buzz away bees, and find another flower.
Bees, Bees, Bees, Bees
Buzzing in bushes and buzzing in trees
Buzzing around, wherever they please
There’s nothing so sweet
As sweet as a honey bee.
