Buzz, buzz, buzz. These pretend bugs are busy flying around. You'll have fun making one puppet-or a whole garden full!
Look at pictures of bees or other insects. Watch them outdoors if you can. Look at their colors and patterns. Some bugs have wings and can fly. Others walk and climb on their legs. Which bugs fascinate you?
On the bottom of a folded lunch bag, draw your insect's face with Crayola® Gel Markers. Give it some bug eyes.
Color your bug's body around the outside of the bag. Maybe it has yellow and black stripes. Or big black dots. Draw on the folded parts of the bag, too.
Open the bag. Stuff it with crumpled newspaper.
Twist the bag's opening into a point. Cover it with masking tape to make a handle. If you made a bee, this could be its stinger!
Does your bug have antennae? Curve two chenille stems. Poke the ends into your puppet's head.
