How to make a paper roll bee craft
Step 1: Paint the paper roll yellow and set aside to dry completely. Paint 2 or 3 black stripes around the paper roll.
Step 2: Glue on the googly eyes. You can also use glow in the dark googly eyes. I know my kids love everything glow in the dark, from paint to clay.
Step 3: Paint one side of the wooden pins black. Once the paint has dried, glue the black pom poms at the top of the clothespins. You will use them for the bee antennae.
Step 4: Use a black marker to draw a little mouth
Step 5: Glue the yellow doily at the back of the paper roll.
