First, print the printable to go along with this craft. We like to practice the letter on the first page before making our handprint.

Make stripes with paint on the palm and fingers. Start with the “head” at the base of the hand and make it black, alternating between yellow and black to make stripes. End with some black paint on the longest finger which will be the bee’s stinger.

Repeat using white paint over the black paint to make the second set of wings. Next, make a pointed stinger at the end of the bee with black paint. Now your bee is complete!
