Bee Craft Idea for Preschool Children
Hi! I'm new to the group! I do family devotions at home with my preschool-age kids every night and thought I would pass on a great idea for the Beatitudes discussions!! Today we are going to do a Bee craft project. I have limited supplies so if you can think of any additional cool things to add to your bee or beehive you can! Take a white paper/styrofoam cup and some cut up pieces of black and yellow construction paper. Have the kids glue the black and yellow pieces of paper to the white paper/styrofoam cup to make a "bee". Tape on some wax paper wings on the top. The bottom of the cup is the face so have them draw on a face! The small lunch paper sack is the beehive. Have them decorate the outside of the paper sack to look like a beehive! Then, on yellow pieces of paper, write out the beatitudes on each piece of yellow construction paper and discuss them, and then have the kids use the bees to "scoop up" the beatitudes and place them in their beehive!!
