After such a long and cold winter, we finally say welcome to Spring!
It’s so exciting to see leaves budding, flowers blossoming, and little bumblebees flying around in our garden when we read outdoors.
We love enjoying a book in the fresh air, but you know what could make it much more fun?
DIY bookmarks! That’s why we have a collection for every occasion. 😉
Of course, this time, after seeing those cute little bees flying around, we had to make a bee corner bookmark.
This cute design is part of our Bug Bookmark Collection, which you can get here, or at the bottom of this post.
You can make this bee craft to encourage your kids to read books, introduce a Spring-themed unit to your students, or learn more about these little creatures.
They are also a fun addition to lessons about nature, ecosystems, or flowers.
And, indeed, you can also craft them with your kids just for fun at home, summer camp, or as a birthday party activity.
I’m sure your kids will adore them no matter why or where you make them.
