Cardboard Tube Bumble Bee

 Bee Supply List: 1 toilet paper roll, yellow construction paper, yellow and black paint, glue, google eyes, scissors, pipe cleaner
 Begin by painting black and yellow stripes on your toilet paper roll.

 Poke two holes in the top of what you want to be the head of the bee and thread your pipe cleaner through.

 Cut your yellow construction paper in an oval shape and decorate if so desired.  Glue wings and google eyes on your toilet paper roll and allow to dry.

Book Suggestion: With school just beginning for most kids, The Very Greedy Bee is a great book to read and discuss the importance of manners, being kind and sharing.  The Greedy Bee likes to eat all the nectar and not share with any of his friends.  One day he eats and eats and eats and can't fly home so he has to rely on the kindness of some other bugs to help him.  Kids will love the bright pictures and cute story.

Great idea! We just made bugs with egg boxes. This has inspired me to try a toilet roll craft with my preschooler. Thank you.

So cute! This is awesome and perfect for the kids! I really loved the materials you put to complete features of the bumble bee. We did a toilet paper roll snake project out of the same materials you used. You should check it out! :)
