Bee Canvas Art

Kids will have great fun creating this cute bumble bee painting to hang on the wall, especially the novel use of bubble wrap to create the hive.

Skill Level

Beginner. Adult supervision needed

Time to Make

25 minutes + drying time

Adult Supervision Needed


How to Make

  1. Cut a tall semi circle shape, slightly smaller than the size of the canvas, out of a piece of bubble wrap.
  2. Mix up a shade of orange paint and cover the bumpy side of the bubble wrap with this paint using a paintbrush.
  3. Print the bubble wrap beehive onto the middle of the mini canvas, then carefully peel it away.
  4. Once the beehive has dried, paint yellow bees around it, and one or two over the top of it. Leave to dry.
  5. Use a black pen to outline the bees and to draw on their stripes. Then add wings and eyes to the bees.
  6. Mix up a dark orange shade of paint and draw a semi circle at the bottom of the beehive.

Top Tip

Remember not add too much paint to the bubble wrap otherwise it may smudge on the canvas. Also, kids could use their finger prints to create the yellow base for the bees.
