The book page was taken out of a paperback we found a while ago from a thrift store; it was falling apart, and we’ve already used a few pages for another project we did. You’ll additionally want to have some glue, a pair of scissors and a sharpie. Optional: add antennae to each bee using black pipe cleaners. Finally, you’ll need this template.
1. Using this template, cut out the bee’s body from black card stock.
2. Cut out strips of yellow paper and glue them onto the bottom part of the bee.
3. Turn the bee over. Cut off the excess yellow paper.
4. Using the book page and template, cut out two wings and glue onto the bee. Write the name onto the wing.
- The place to ‘bee’: Post up information on campus hot spots for studying, such as the library or a local coffee shop
- Make a giant hive, honeycomb or honey jar out of butcher paper.
- Bee-You-tiful: Host a program on body image. Watch a documentary such as America the Beautiful and have a discussion about what beauty really means. Finally, have residents create a collage using empowering words cut out of magazines that they want to define their individual beauty.
- Birds and the bees: Host a sex education program. Contact your campus health center, or you may have a special student organization that specializes in educational events. Consider doing activities such as Body Bingo, or organize a Condom Olympics.
- What the Buzz? Host a Jeopardy game night, focusing on pop culture and current events. It’ll be a good way to keep your residents on top of what’s going on around them and have some friendly competition.
