yarn wrapped bumble bees, toilet roll craft for kids.

I’m absolutely buzzing to share todays craft with you! Okay, that was a terrible joke but aren’t these little yarn wrapped bumble bees just the cutest? We had loads of fun making these little guys and it was a great way to talk to my son about how important bees are for out eco system. These little guys are so sweet and easy to make which makes them perfect for at home and for preschools too.

Here’s what we used:

Toilet roll

White paper

Eye stickers

Black paint

Yellow/orange wool

Scissors

Glue/tape

Take your toilet roll and cover it in black paint before putting it aside to dry.

Take your white paper and cut out two wing shapes and fold a small tab at the bottom of each one. Once your Tp roll is  dry use these tabs to glue your wings about 1/3 of the way up your Tp roll.

On the opposite side, make a small snip at the back of your TP roll. Push one end of your wool down into this snip and secure it with fast drying glue or tape.

Wrap your yarn upwards along your bumble bee and stop about 2cm away from the end. Then, wrap your wool back down towards your starting end and secure the loose end by pushing it through the slit and again using tape or glue.
