Wednesday Craft Group - Bees

Bees...dozens of little buzzing bees.

It was SO much fun. We started with the tiniest little pine cones any of us had ever seen (you can see them in the background of the picture above) we wound yellow wool around and around and then tied on little wings, made from tracing paper, with gold thread; so EASY!

And because I am inspired by Childhood Magic to add more wood to our crafting we hunted down stray sticks from the ground around us and i give you - Bee's on sticks -


It makes me feel a little dizzy
To watch the bees so small and busy
They gather pollen at all hours
To make the honey from the flowers

On the way home the wee girl giggled herself silly trying to catch this one.

Yes MM I probably should..perhaps I'll send you one.
