If you are looking for a quick after school craft for kids then look no further than these super simple clothespeg and pipe cleaner buzzy bees.
This 5-10min no glue craft is also idea for some classroom craftiness for the youngest hands and children up to age 8 – no mess, minimum prep and clean-up.
All you need are some wooden clothespegs, pipe cleaners, googly eyes and some craft foam cut into wing shapes.
Start by inserting the craft foam wings into the peg slot.
Then just wind the pipe cleaners around the peg, above and below the wings to keep it in position.
Add on the google eyes – large eyes make the bugs look goofy!!! and we like goofy in this house!!
And finally just wind a small pipe cleaner around the neck and up at the back of the head for the antennae – curl the ends of the antennae around a pencil or knitting needle so there are no ‘hurty’ sharp ends on the pipe cleaner.
SIDE BY SIDE CRAFTING FUN
I love nothing more than when my 8yo daughter says ‘cool’ when she see’s what I am up to and is inspired to roll up a chair and start making alongside me… taking the craft further to her own little world. In her own gorgeous girly way she decided to make the queen bee, with wool fuzz hair (she brushed craft glue onto the head and dipped it in some wool clippings I hoarded after making pop poms some time back), pipe cleaner handies and a pink bead pot of honey. Love it xx
