Egg Carton Bee Craft

Using an egg carton and some paint, let the kids make the cutest cartoon bee egg crafts. This is an easy craft, suitable for preschool children (and up). With some help, this project can also be done in preschool, but you will have to cut out the egg carton first.

This dish can be made all year round, but the best time to make it is in the spring or summer.
