This bee craft is very versatile with lots of options. Before I’m done designing a “craftivity”, I ask myself if there’s another writing prompt I can include that also fits this project. Such was the case with this bee-themed craftivity for Mother’s Day, which can also be used for BTS (back to school) or a super-fun activity at the end of the year.

Teacher Comments:

  • “I love all of the cute options.”
  • “My class made a really cute bulletin board with this resource.”

To help celebrate all of these occasions, I'm pricing this packet at $2.95 instead of $3.95.

There are 2 craftivities in the packet. Children can make a bee and choose the prompt “My mom is bee-utiful because . . .” or make fingerprint bees around a hive.

Another writing prompt is: “My mom is terrific ‘bee-cause” . . .

So that students can write something different, I’ve included blank bee and hive patterns.

There’s also a generic “You are ‘bee-utiful’ because …” or “You are terrific ‘bee-cause’” options.

At the end of the year, students can make a bee or hive that says: “I had a ________________ year in ________________ ‘bee-cause’”. OR . . .

“I’m looking forward to a super summer ‘bee-cause’”.

Another fun option is to have this year’s students make a bee or hive for next year’s students.

“You’re going to have a _______________ year in _______________ ‘bee-cause’”.

What a fun thing to have tucked in your students’ desks or displayed on their lockers at the beginning of the year.

As with the other bee craftivities, children can write their note of “why” on the bee’s stripes, or if you want students to write more, they can complete the little apple booklet and glue it to the front.

In-coming kiddos can also make a bee or hive and use the “I had a ________________ summer ‘bee-cause’…”

Use wax paper or velum for the wings.

I wanted the Mother’s Day beehive card to be a keepsake, so my students dipped their thumb in yellow paint to make the bees, and used their pinkies and white paint for the wings.

When their cards dried, they drew on details with a black marker, and glued their school photo in the “door”.

If you like the hive idea, but don’t want to mess with paint, I’ve also included bee “stickers”. Students get a strip of 4, trim and glue to their card.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy this craftivity as much as mine did.
