Completed bee finger puppet craft

You will need:

  • Print the printable craft page onto card or you could print onto paper then stick it onto card (e.g. cereal box) to stiffen
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Yellow coloured pencil or pen
  • 4 paper cupcake cases (could also make wings out of paper)

How to make:

  • Print out the bee puppets printable craft page.
  • Colour the bees in yellow.
  • Cut the bees out and their finger loops.
  • Fold each cupcake in half, then in half again to make the wings. Glue each wing to the back of the bees. Each bee should have 2 wings.
  • Glue each end of the finger loop, leaving the middle free of glue (this is where your finger goes through). Glue the loops onto the back of each bee.
