YOU WILL NEED
sheet of absorbent paper
long thin candle
thin paint in a small bowl
brushes (shaving brushes are easy for small children to hold)
Put on apron.
Draw on absorbent paper using either end of the candle depending on the desired effect.
Paint over the wax design using a brush and one or more colours. The wax design resists the paint and shows through clearly.
Try using crayons instead of candles; black is most effective.
The wax design appears just like magic!

|Fold a piece of yellow felt in half, and cut out the body shape - you will have 2 pieces. Then cut 6 stripes out of brown felt. || |
Glue stripes onto both sides of the body (taking care to match stripes up). Don't glue on the edge, as it makes stitching difficult.
|Join pieces together and blanket-stitch around the edges. || |
|Cut wings out of white felt, and stitch onto back of bee.|| |
Sew on two buttons for eyes and bzzzzz you�re away! Bee is approx. 4cm wide x 6cm length.
