Most people might be accustomed to turning eggs into rabbits or chickens on Easter Day. For me, I suppose the spring atmosphere will become much greater when a party is thrown in the garden with Easter egg decorations craft.
The DIY bee craft gives not only a ton of adorableness but also a meaningful occasion to spend time with your kids and do this cute project.
What You Need
- Hard-boiled egg
- Acrylic paint
- Blue glassine paper
- Bbq wood stick
- Black marker
- Hot glue gun
Step by Step Tutorial: Easy Bee Crafts for Preschoolers
- Start by painting the entire egg yellow, then give it ample time to dry completely.
2. Once the egg has dried, use black paint to form stripes around it. You should draw at least 2, but ideally, 3 stripes will look better depending on the egg’s size.
3. Next, use a black marker to add eyebrows, eyes, and a smile to the bottom of the egg to create a happy face for the bee.
4. For the bee’s wings, cut a heart-shaped piece from blue glassine paper. Then, attach the wings to the back of the bee.
5. The final step is to stick a bbq to the body of the bee.
Can I Use a Plastic Egg for This Craft?
Absolutely, you can use plastic eggs instead! In case you cannot spend on boiling eggs, plastic ones are a nice alternative.
For easy-to-find plastic eggs, you just need to visit local craft stores, dollar stores, or even stay at home and stop by an online mall to get them.
The only vital thing the plan requires is an egg-shaped item for your decor design.
How Can I Display My Bee Decor DIY?
There is no doubt the craft goes well with the concept of the garden.
Putting the cute bees into a jar and placing a swarm of bees on the table party as a centerpiece will surprise you as well as cheer your kids up since the fun look.
If you use plastic eggs, it occurs to me how lovely it is to add the bee decoration to a kid’s bedroom or nursery.
The bee craft for kindergarten also serves well for spring parties on Easter Sunday as adorable ornaments.
What Paint is Best for Bees Made of Easter Eggs?
Since you will peel the eggshell off when you have Easter brunch, the paint isn’t a matter, and don’t worry about the food grade.
I prefer to use acrylic paint for my Easter egg decorations craft as it provides an excellent cover.
However, you are also recommended to use simple craft paint so it will be dry fast. If you have available watercolor, don’t hesitate to grab it for your embellishment.
Have a super-duper creation!
