Bubble Print Bee Hive

My husband brought home a bunch of bubble wrap for the kids to play with, and although bubble wrap can be amusing and entertaining by itself, I wanted to see if there were other ways to have fun with it.  I found this cute art project by House of Baby Piranha and thought we'd create our own bee hive.



Supplies:
-Paint brush
-Paint (we used orange and yellow)
-Marker
-Bubble wrap


Directions:
First we cut out our bubble wrap in the shape of the beehive.  Then we painted the bubble wrap (bubble side up) with our orange and yellow paints.


Next, press your painted bubble wrap onto your paper.


Then dip your thumb into the yellow paint and create bees swarming the hive.


Take a marker to draw the stripes and wings on your bees.


And there you have it...a really simple and cute craft!
