I just got my new FamilyFun magazine, and it had a perfect activity for our bug theme! You can find their directions here. I adapted the directions using things I already had at home!
1) Using a craft stick, place pencil erasers on both ends. You can see I adapted it by using a pencil. We put a thumbtack in the eraser side and wrapped the other side thickly with tape.
2) Cut an index card into a 3″ square (we used our extra kite triangles). Decorate it, center it on the pencil, and staple (or tape) it.
3) Tie a piece of yarn on one side. Stretch a rubber band across the pencil.
4) Swing the hummer in a circle to make a buzzing noise! If you don’t hear a buzzing sound, try reversing your circle. You also have to swing it quickly!
