This fun activity promotes fine motor skills, following directions and freedom of choice.

What You Need

  • Cardboard (cut into an oval)
  • Black and Yellow Yarn
  • Old Book (one that you don’t mind cutting into pieces)
  • Googly Eyes
  • White Glue
  • Popsicle Stick
  • Toothpick (optional for the stinger)


  • Precut little slits or grooves all the way around the outside of the cardboard oval.
  • Starting with yellow yarn, and moving onto the black, simply tie the two colored ends together; no tape is needed. Once satisfied with the amount of yarn, tie another knot.
  • Add googly eyes and little stinger.
  • Cut wings from the book pages and glue to the bee. Wax paper can be used as an alternative material.
  • Turn the little bees into puppets with the addition of a popsicle stick.
