Easy Peasy Art

O.K. so here is my latest bulletin board...
The flowers - got that idea from a teacher friend, but the bees, that's all me! This art project is so easy, you will want to do it. First, the flowers. You just need a piece of blue construction paper 8.5 X 5 and a  cupcake/muffin liner, some sequins and a small strip of green construction paper. I show my kids how to make a stem and two leaves and then just let them go. That's why all the stems are sooooo different. As for the bee, I made tracers on cardboard (I actually just use cereal boxes) and my kids traced them onto yellow construction paper and then added black felt for the stripes, so that the bees are nice and soft when you touch 'em. The wings are just a piece of doily coloured black. Voila - DONE! If you want to try it, you can click on the bees to download the outline. It's not perfect cause I did it freehand.
