We made a paper plate bumble bee in preschool

The children at preschool made a paper plate bumble bee…

The children started by using yellow paint and a paint roller to turn their paper plate a bright yellow…

Then the children painted on some black bumblebee stripes with a paint brush. Notice how they used different types of painting tools as this process progressed.

Using different tools for painting keeps the process interesting…

Time to add on the bumblebee head! The children used their fingers to paint on the eyes – another form of painting is now added to this mix…

And then they taped on the bumblebee antennae..

Don’t forget to write that name on the bumblebee before you start to paint!

I love this craft! What a perfect idea for the season. Thank you for always sharing such cute and wonderful ideas. I use to teach first grade, and I used many of your ideas. Now, I am in middle school, but I still use your site with my two children (Riley – 6 and Jacob – 3).

Thanks for great posts,

Erin Klein

Yes – it kind of presents a problem when they already painted!
