Our Experience With This Bee Craft

clothespeg and pipe cleaner bee craft

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

  1. This craft is perfect for my 3yo’s birthday party craft table, thank you for sharing! Can you explain how you attached the eyes without glue? Looks like the ones I have do not have adhesive on the back, do yours?

    Hi, Rachel! I have seen googly eyes with sticker backings! You just peel the back off (like a sticker) and stick them on! You can also use glue dots.
