Ever since we created our first craft video for the paper plate Earth, my kids have been asking for more. I try to come up with easy projects that my preschoolers can pull off on their own. This time I suggested a paper plate bee craft to my 5-year old. He loves painting on paper plates (it must be because of the shape or sturdy material) so he embraced the idea right away.
See the paper plate bee craft at the end of this post.
MORE SPRING CRAFTS FOR KIDS:
Paper plate bee craft
- paper plate
- paint (yellow and black)
- pom poms
- wooden clothespins
- googly eyes
Step 1: Paint the paper plate yellow and let it dry. We used small paper plates but any size plate will work just fine.
Step 2: Use a pom pom with a clothespin as handle to paint black strips on the paper plate. Start at the bottom and go about halfway up. Leave the paper plate yellow at the top as this is where we’ll glue the googly eyes.
Step 3: Paint two wooden clothespins black and after they dried up, glue two black pom poms at the top. One pom pom for each clothespin. These will be the bee’s antennae.
