We made bumblebees in preschool

I have found so many cute ideas on other blogs that I can’t remember who shared what but somewhere along the way, I found this cute idea for bumblebees.

We started out by gluing wax paper wings to our yellow construction paper bee bodies…

Then we added a black construction paper head and some black construction paper stripes…

Our stripes went all directions…

Next up – we added some eyeballs…

And finished off our bees with antenna and a stinger.

B is for Bumble Bee!

    It looks like you used squirt bottle glue, Deborah. Usually when we do this with 3’s there are always a few who just want empty the bottle on the paper. Did you stop them somehow or did you just not show the floods? I’m curious because painting the glue is ruining my brushes! =)

    Hi Tom,
    The kids use these glue bottles with brushes on everything! They almost use the glue bottles/brushes on everything in creative art. Glue sticks in language art. Here is a link to the bottles/brushes we use and it saves glue, brushes, and it is very manageable for the kids. I know it looks like glue was squirted on the pieces but that is because the bottles were full and the glue ran down the strips a bit. http://www.discountschoolsupply.com/Product/ProductDetail.aspx?product=24340&es=4589500000W

    Hi, I’d like to comment on the glue thing! Instead of using paint brushes, we give the kids popsicle sticks or coffee stirrers. We give them just a small amount of glue placed in a really small cup. That way, they can’t get too much glue.

    I have also used Q tips for gluing paper to paper. I put the glue into small disposable nut cups so very little is wasted.

    Oh yes, I love that idea!
