Trace the template onto cardstock or construction paper and cut out. Glue the black part of the head onto the yellow part of the head and then use scissors to trim off any excess paper.
Cut a small circle from red paper. Cut 2 small black strips from black paper and 2 tiny black circles. Glue the circle at the top of each strip.
Glue the eyes, nose and antantee onto the bee’s head. Use a black marker to add a smile to the bee’s face.
Glue the bee’s head onto the cup. Glue the smaller and larger pieces of the wings together. Glue the wings onto each side of the cup.
