Paper Plate Handprint Bee Craft Instructions:

STEP 1: Get your supplies ready and get painting!

There aren't many supplies to get prepared for this paper plate craft, but as always it is good to have all your supplies to hand before starting your craft.

To start take your paper plate and paint it with yellow paint. Let it dry completely before continuing.

STEP 2: Add stripes

Once the yellow paper plate is dry, start by painting black stripes onto it and set aside to let it dry. Once you have made sure the paint has dried, you need to take the paper plate and fold it in half.

STEP 3: Shape the paper plate body

Now it is time to shape the bee's body. Start by rounding the right end of the paper plate with the help of scissors. The rounded part is going to be the bee's head. Then trim the left side to look like the stinger.

If you want to add some rocking motion to your bee craft, keep the bottom of your plate rounded so it will be able to move back and forth once this bee craft is completed!

You need to take your white cardstock and trace your little one's hands on it and then cut out the hand-shape. Remember you need two handprints, one for each wing!
