Bees Crafts, Bee Preschool Activities, Lessons, Games, and Printables

Bee Preschool Curriculum Activities. What’s the buzz all about? It’s about this month’s theme—BEES. What would we do without these little creatures? They provide us with honey and they pollinate flowers. And they are like humans in many ways: bees have jobs, bees make bread, and bees like to dance. Our educational bee-related crafts, activities, folder games, rhymes, and resources will provide your child with hours and hours of learning and fun. Here are some of our more than 80 bee crafts, bee preschool activities, and resources available in our KidsSoup member site:

Bee Activities

Plant a Bee Garden
With children, plant flowers that attract bees such as black-eyed Susans, lantana, and zinnias and herbs such as lavender, basil, and sage.

 

Where Are My Bees?
To reinforce the parts of a bee, play this fun game with your children. Have children sit in a circle and let them pretend to be little bees in a classroom. Explain that the little bees will learn about their body parts and as soon as the teacher ask them about their wings they can fly around the room until the school bell rings (demonstrate the little bell ringing.)

Call out "Where are my bees?" Let children stand up and say, "Here we are!" Ask, "Where's your head, little bees?" Children point to their heads and say, "Here's my head." Ask, "Where's your thorax, little bees?" Children point to their chest and say, "Here's my chest." Ask, "Where's your stomach, little bees?" Children point to their stomach and say, "Here's my stomach." Ask, "Where are your wings, little bees?" Children flap their arms and say, "Here are my wings." And let them fly around until you ring a bell to gather back in the circle.

Repeat with other body parts such as eyes, tongue, and legs. As soon as you as "Where are your wings, little bees?" let the little bees fly around in the room.

Bumblebee on My Nose
(Tune: Jingle Bells)
Author Unknown

Bumblebee, bumblebee
Landing on my toes.

Now he's on my nose.
On my arms,
On my legs,
On my elbows.
Bumblebee, oh, bumblebee,
He lands and then he goes.

Do You Like To Buzz?
(Tune: Do Your Ears Hang Low)
Author Unknown

Do you like to buzz?
Are you covered all in fuzz?
Do you call a hive a home
In the garden where you roam?
Do you know how to make honey?
Are your stripes a little funny?
Do you like to buzz?

 

The Honeybee & the Robber by Eric Carle

 

Bees and Beehive Finger Play

Two Big Beehives
Author Unknown

Two big beehives (Hold out two fists.)
Closed up tight,
Protecting sleeping bees (Rest head on hands.)
All through the night.

When the morning sun (Make circle with arms over head.)
Shows its light,
Ten little bees (Hold out two fists.)
Take to flight. (Open fists and wiggle fingers away.)
