Paper Plate Bee

Perfect for summer, this easy bee craft for preschoolers is effective on display, whether there is one bumblebee or a whole swarm! If you are doing the craft with a class or group of little ones, it is a good idea to do the initial yellow painting and then distract them with something else while the paint dries.
