An egg carton bee and a stick worm

This week our theme at school was bugs and the children had fun crafting different kids of bugs. We also made snails out of paper plates and made a fingerprint jar of bugs too. What was really outstanding this week were two very cute bugs which were created from egg cartons and a simple stick.

There’s a lot of things you can do with egg cartons, and there are some ingenious ideas from our local blogger lately: check out Harassed Mom‘s bugs (love the toothprick legs) and In These Stilettos firetruck and police car vehicles.

EGG CARTON BEE:

You will need:

egg carton (two compartments per bee)

paint (yellow)

koki (black)

pipe cleaners for wings and feelers (black and silver/ yellow)

Google eyes

Method:

Paint the egg carton yellow. Make two black stripes with koki.

Make two holes in front for the feelers and thread them through. Take another pipe cleaner and make a figure eight and thread it around the middle for wings.

Glue two google eyes in front.

STICK WORM

You will need:

A stick

A pipecleaner

Paint

Pom pom

Google eyes

Method:

Paint the stick.

Wrap the pipecleaner around the pom pom for the head and then around the stick.

Stick google eyes on the pom pom.
