Steps to make Bee Cookies
The first place we start with any cookie is the design. Trace a cookie cutter. For the bee cookie, we used a 6 petal flower. Next, using a pencil, draw the basic shape of a bee. We made sure to put the head and stinger in the top and bottom petals and the wings on the petals on the sides. Once you are happy with your pencil drawing, outline, and color in the details of your design. Use this drawing as a guide for decorating the cookie.
These bees are so cute!🙂
