Pool Noodle Bumblebee Craft Project
- Yellow pool noodle
- Black craft foam or paper
- Googly eyes
- Pom pom
- Serrated knife
- Hot glue, glue gun
1. Begin by cutting the pool noodle into a 3-4 inch segment. The serrated knife makes nice and easy as well as even cuts, so I advise using one!
2. You can now use your black craft paper or foam to create the details. I freehanded a pair of wings as well as antenna and the stripe around the front of the bee. For wings, you could easily cut out heart shapes if they are easier and use those, and for the other two accents just use strips.
3. Set the accents aside and add the face of your bee. We glued on two googly eyes as well as a pom-pom for the nose.
4. You can now glue on the accents such as the wings and antennae.
We just folded the edges of our wings over and added glue, then pressed them to the pool noodle to make them stick.
Your pool noodle bumblebee is now complete! See how easy that can be? This would be a perfect craft for children’s parties or anytime you need something to beat summer boredom.
Find a yellow pool noodle at your local dollar store and give this easy pool noodle bumble bee craft a try. It is a great way to put a pool noodle to use in a crazy and creative way.
