Bees are insects too!

Whilst learning about the letter "Ii" and the numeral "6",
we thought making a bee would be fun and educational.
I apologise for not having the website in which this little guy was found, but it was not my original idea. I just adjusted it.
We were given a pack of raffia so we used this for legs but you could use pipe cleaners, also. Cut to leg size!!
Cut a paper plate to look something like this. First, in half, then the top corners, then a triangle at the chin.

 Use the other half of the plate and place bee lines across the body. These can be drawn in either direction.
Glue the head to the body ... or staple for better security! ;)
Draw eyes on the head plate. We did a quick little lesson about how to draw these. Start with a circle. Place and arc inside. Next, place a tiny circle at the top.
Then, colour the arc black, but not the little circle.

Staple the antennae on at the back.
Finish the face with something special.

Curl the tops of the antennae.

Add some wings using tissue paper.

Bees .... en mass .... BUZZZZZZZZ!

Have a busy, buzy time!
