- color papers (yellow and red)
- glue stick
- black pipe cleaner

Step by Step Tutorial
Paint a yogurt glass with bonding primer, and when dry, paint it yellow.
The yellow yogurt glass will represent the body of the bee.
Kids will have a lot of fun with paint, but they may need assistance with this part of the craft.
On yellow paper, draw two wings.
Cut the wings out.
Draw stripes on them with black and brown markers so that the yellow paper is visible in between.
Glue googly eyes on a black pompom.
Go ahead and cut two smaller pieces of black chenille.
Glue them on the pompom.
Trim the chenille pieces.
Draw a mouth on red paper.
Cut it out, and then glue on the pompom.
Cut six small pieces of black chenille for the legs.
Glue the chenille legs to the top of the yogurt glass.
