Ladybugs, Bumble Bees and Butterflies, Oh My!



We spent some time last week making butterflies, bees, and ladybugs to go along with out insect unit. They turned out really cute!



The bees are a free download from Teacher’s Pay Teachers. Here is the link:

It’s a precious little art activity from Fall Into First.


The ladybugs and the butterflies are from this great book..


You can buy it on Amazon..

I am obsessed with your crafts! I love how you made the bee's wings! (that you don't have to trace them on black paper )

What a wonderful display! We are studying insects at this time! I forgot about this book to use - I assume you copy the pattern on cardstock and the kids cut the pieces out, correct?
Also, where did you get the Mother's Day pots? I had only white pots!
Thanks again for your willingness to share!

Hi Sweet Friend. My annual camping with book is coming up in a week. I'd love to package you up and mail you to my school to create my mural. How much do you think that would cost? =)

Hi Kacey!

Wanted to let you know that we featured your adorable bees at our blog, Bulletin Board Ideas! October is Bullying Prevention Month and, to go along with our "BEE A Buddy, Not A Bully" theme, we showcased some fun bee crafts that teachers can do with their kiddos, yours included.

You can find the full feature here:

We were sure to give idea/photo credit, as well as a link to your lovely blog, but we'd love for you to check it out!

Happy learning!
