Egg Carton Bumble Bee Craft

Sherri Osborn
This cute little bee was created using 2 cups cut from an egg carton. Glue them together and use the supplies I suggest to decorate them to look like a bee or any other bug you like.

  • Age Guideline: 6 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

To make this cute bumble bee, start off by cutting a two-cup section from an egg carton, leaving the cups attached. Bend the egg carton cups towards each other so they are rim-to-rim. This will make an oval shape. Glue the the rims together and let dry the glue dry.

Trim off any rough edges around the section you glued so you have a nice oval which will now serve as your bumble bee's body. Paint the egg carton oval yellow and black so it resembles a bee. Let the paint dry.

Use the supplies I have listed above or whatever materials you have on hand to add the details to your bumble bee. I made wings using craft foam, antenna and a stinger using chenille stems, tiny pom-poms at the tips of the antenna, and wiggle eyes. I also painted on a smiling mouth. Use your own imagination to make your bumble bee unique.

Let and glue or paint dry and display your bumble bee with pride.
