I made this sceptor from a dowel stick and an unpainted wooden bumble bee (from local craft store). I hot glued the part that is supposed to be antennae to the dowel stick and painted the whole thing white. The kids glued on the jewels and the glitter and chose their own ribbon to tie on the stick. Each one turned out unique!
For the boys, I made the sceptor the same way but I spray painted the whole thing gold instead of white. They added glitter and jewels as well. As we told the story, the boys used their sceptors as they pretended they were King Xerxes.
