Let’s make a honeycomb using bubble wrap today 😀
Paint a piece of bubble wrap
Place the painted surface down on a piece of paper
Paint your thumb and stamp all over as the bees
Paint the wings and draw lines on the bees.
Now comes the fun part. Mix some paint with PVA glue.
Drip the mixture onto the honeycomb
Hold the paper up and see the paint mixture flow creating honey in the honeycomb 😀
Optional : I cut some ovals out of yellow foam and get the kids to paste them onto the honeycomb. Paste plastic wings too.
We did an egg carton bee today 😀
