When your children are home on summer break, spend time making bumblebee-inspired crafts with them. Kids can learn about nature while creating whimsical toys or gifts for friends. The crafts also make ideal favours for bee-, insect- or garden-themed birthday parties. Kids can design simple bee antennae crafts using inexpensive plastic headbands and a few basic art supplies. If you hang onto the crafts until fall, use them as part of the child's Halloween bee costume.

  1. 1

    Place a dab of hot glue on a black plastic headband just slightly left of centre. Wrap the end of a black, 12-inch pipe cleaner around the headband, pressing it into the glue.

  2. 2

    Apply another dab of glue 2 inches to the right of the pipe cleaner. Wrap the end of another black, 12-inch pipe cleaner around the headband over the glue to form two bee antennae.

  3. 3

    Bend the tops of the pipe cleaners into decorative curls.

  4. 4

    Apply gold glitter glue to the top ends of the pipe cleaners to give the antennae a touch of sparkle. Allow the glue to dry before wearing the headband.
