Main Steps

  1. Stretch a wide rubber band lengthwise over one of the craft sticks.
  2. Cut two small pieces of straw, each about 1 inch to 1 1⁄2 inches (2.5 to 3.8 cm) in length. Put one of the small straw pieces under the wide rubber band, about 4 1/2 cm.from the end of the stick. Put the other piece of straw on top of the rubber band, about 4 1/2 cm. from the end of the stick
  3. Take the second craft stick and place it on top of the first one.
  4. Wrap one of the smaller rubber bands a few times around the end of the stick where you placed the second piece of straw, about 1/2 inch from the end. Make sure the rubber band pinches the two sticks tightly together.
  5. Wrap the second small rubber band around the other end of the stick, about 1/2 inch from the end. When you’re done, both ends should be pinched together and there should be a small space between the two craft sticks, created by the pieces of straw.

Materials

  • Two jumbo craft sticks
  • Regular drinking straw
  • Wide rubber band
  • Two smaller rubber bands

4.Cut enough string about 2 feet to safely swing the Bee Hummer.
5.Then tie the string next to one of the erasers, making several knots so it’s secure.
6.Once the string is tied to your Bee Hummer, stretch the rubber band around the craft stick from one eraser to the other, and make sure it’s snugly in place.
