The six year olds 'bee' all his own design - some help with the sticky tape!
The four year olds 'bee' (copying his brother's - except they ran out of black tape so his has strips of paper coloured black)
The two year old's "bottle-fly"
I am sure that you get the gist... get an empty plastic bottle and decorate it into a bug.
Things you could use:
- tape (different coloured electical tape works well or masking tape means they can add details using crayons or pens)
- paper (tissue paper or cellophane makes good wings, wrapping paper scraps to cover the bottle makes it very colourful, sugar paper makes a good base for butterfly wings)
- pipecleaners (antennae and legs)
- 'googly' eyes
Make a real minibeast or an imaginary bug; maybe make lots and host an ugly bug ball or join in the creepy crawly calypso... but most of all have fun.
