Have you heard the buzz? This week’s animal letter craft is coming your way and it’s really quite bee-u-tiful! Our B Is for Bee craft is colorful and fun, so let’s get started!

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 2 sheets of printer paper
  • Card stock (we used blue, black, white, and yellow)
  • B Is for Bee Craft templates
  • 2 “googly” eyes
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

Instructions for Assembling Your Letter B Craft

  1. Print the B Is for Bee Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter B, bee wings, antennas, and stripes onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter B and bee pieces.
  4. Glue the letter B and the bee pieces onto a full sheet of card stock (we used blue, but you can use any color you like) to form a buzzing bee.
  5. Affix 2 googly eyes to the top of the “B” just beneath the antennas.

What a creative and fun way for kids to learn their letters. I’m excited to use AAR!

Amanda Marsden

Thank you for this craft project. My 4 year old had a lot of fun putting this letter together. All the alphabet letters are really nice. She can’t wait to make the C! Do you have any lower case letter projects available?

Amanda,
We don’t have a lower case letter craft series, but we do have a few letter activities that include lower case letters. Check out Feed the Puppy, Tactile Letter Cards, ABC Caterpillar, and ABC Playdough Mats.

I really love these! I use them with my youngest for letter recognition with cutting practice. I use them for my middle child to have practice on cutting and sound recognition. Can’t wait to see The letter D!

Great, engaging activity! Excellent for hands-on learners.

Maureen

says:

Love these crafts!!!

Great ideas for my preschooler!

Yvette Jimenez

says:

These are great ideas. What’s the youngest age you would suggest for crafts like these?

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Yvette,
It depends on the child and the amount of supervision and help. If you planned to have your child work alone on these crafts, they need to be at least 4-years-old or so. Those googly eyes could be a choking hazard to younger children. However, with supervision and help, 2 and 3-year-olds could be very successful with these crafts. I have even known a few of 18-month-old toddlers that would be happy to put on the eyes and a piece or two of the paper while an adult did the rest.

Anna

says:

I have already started getting mine. I can’t wait to do this with my 4 year old.

Lisa

says:

These are great! Thank you!

Katherine

says:

I love this craft! My 5 year old daughter was excited it was Wednesday to get our next letter. We are saving the little “B” in the top corner on both templates to make a memory/matching game for the end. Just cutting them out and putting them in an envelope as we gather them each week. Thank you for the wonderful learning tool!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Katherine,
I love your idea to save the letters in the upper left-hand corner each week for a match game! That would be such a fun review after completing the entire alphabet. Thank you for sharing this idea!

Brie

says:

I think this is such a sweet idea. Thank you for sharing these.

Wilhelmina

says:

Thank you for this lovely “B” craft idea. I can’t wait to use it in my class next school year.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Wilhelmina,
I think these letter crafts would be so much in a class setting, and would make great decorations for a bulletin board!
