Make a cute paper bee craft with a beautiful flower scene during this spring season! It comes with a printable template for kids to color and cut out.
This honey bee craft is perfect to teach kids about the concept of pollination, just like our paper plate garden and bee craft. We have rolled small paper pieces and stuck them under the flowers to get a 3d effect for this craft.
This is great to do at school, in childcare, or at home with preschoolers, kindergarteners, and school-age kids. It only needs some basic craft supplies. Kids will love to paint beautiful flowers and make a gorgeous garden scenery for their bee craft.

How to make a paper bee craft for kids
Download and print the paper bee and flower template on two white A4 cardstocks.
Paint the bee’s body, head, stinger, wings, and flowers using watercolor or crayons. Cut out all the parts.
Let’s start making the garden scene. Get a green A4 cardstock and cut out a thin long strip of paper vertically. It doesn’t need to have straight edges. It can be a bit irregular and curvy to resemble a real stem.
Stick it towards the right side of a blue A4 cardstock. Make sure there is enough space on the left side of this stem for sticking the bee later.
Cut out a small paper strip from the same green cardstock and stick the ends together to form a paper loop. Stick it beside the stem and stick a flower on the top of this paper loop. This gives the flower a slight 3d look. Similarly, stick more paper rolls and flowers on the stem.
Cut out more thin vertical paper strips (shorter than the first one) from the green cardstock to form more stems. Stick them towards the left of the long stem. Stick paper rolls on those stems and then flowers on the top of them as we did in the previous step.
Cut out more small green paper strips from the green cardstock in any shape and stick them between these stems to form the grass. We cut irregular V shapes for this. The flower scene is ready.
Let’s make the paper bee now. Stick the bee’s head in front of its body. Then stick the antennae, eyes, and stinger. Draw a cute smile with a black marker and finally stick the wings. Stick the bee near the flower scene we made.
The paper bee craft with a beautiful flower scene is ready! Doesn’t it look so pretty?
