Buzzing little bumble bee prints in preschool

Buzzing little bumble bee prints in preschool

This is a simple bumble bee activity box to throw together….

All you need are yellow ink pads, black crayons, and some pieces of paper….

Invite the children to press their fingers on the yellow ink pad and then make yellow prints on their paper…

Once they have their prints on the paper, invite the children to use a black crayon or marker to add additional bumble bee features…

Some of the children really went all out adding all the extra features to their bumble bee prints..

Other children preferred just to explore with the finger printing process…

A simple way to let little busy bees explore!  This little girl made an entire bumble bee family…

    We did this last year for Mother’s Day. We added the bumble bees to Handprint Flowers. It was a big hit!

    That’s look cute. I’m definitely going to try this with my class of 4 year olds.
