These imaginative crafts will keep kids occupied for a few good hours, and even better, they'll get them excited about spring.

What you'll do:

  1. Paint the light bulb with the yellow paint. Let the paint dry completely, then apply a second coat of paint.
  2. Draw stripes on the light bulb with the black permanent marker, then color the metal part of the light bulb with the black permanent marker.
  3. Glue the googly eyes on the metal part of the light bulb.
  4. Cut a white pipe cleaner in half. Bring the ends of the pipe cleaner together to form the wings. Use a dab of glue to secure the wings in place.
  5. Cut two narrow strips of black construction paper that are approximately 2 inches long. Curl the ends of the strips to make the antennae, then glue the strips just above the eyes.
  6. Cut a piece of white pipe cleaner that is 3 inches long. Coil the pipe cleaner around a pencil or your finger, then glue it to the back of the light bulb to form the stinger.
