"In the springtime, bees are buzzing everywhere, frantically collecting that pollen from every bloom. Give your own little busy bees a fun project to work on with this Paper Bag Bee! Your kids will love buzzing this cheerful puppet all around the house. Maybe they’ll even come up with a bee-themed puppet show for the whole family to enjoy. Paper bag puppets are a childhood staple. They’re easy to make and fun to play with. Plus, they store flat, so you can have an entire puppet collection tucked away in a drawer for whenever your kids want to play! "
