With the temperatures rising all kinds of amazing (and eeeek) bugs start coming out. Bee’s are one of the most important bugs on our planet and teaching kids about them and what their role is is really important.
These little buys workers make a great unit theme for kindergarten and these printable puppets (or crafted without a template) will make a great craft activity for that unit study. Naturally you can just make them for fun too, as they certainly are a fun spring craft for kids to make.
Ready to make your bee? Print our template and let’s get crafting!
What you need:
For the puppet made with a template:
- our printable template (grab it at the end of this tutorial)
- heavier print paper (recommended) – regular print paper will work too
- coloring supplies (blue, yellow, black, reds, pinks)
For the puppet made without the template
- sheet of yellow paper (letter or A4 size)
- black paper
- red paper
- blue paper
- googly eyes or wiggle eye stickers

If using our template (you can grab it at the end of the tutorial) – print it on heavier print paper (it will make them more durable and easier to color with markers). Regular print paper will work out OK too, but wont make the puppets as durable as heavier print one (cardstock) and coloring with markers isn’t what we recommend for regular print paper as it can wrinkle.
If you’ll have the kids color it in with crayons or colorin pencils, regular paper will be perfect.
Start by coloring in the bee design on the template.
With regular yellow paper, fold into thirds lenghtwise.
