My inspiration for hosting a BEE Themed playdate came from my son's recent obsession with the book A Hunny, Funny, Sunny Day! by Bruce Talkington. So, of course that was one of the books that we read. We also read Bugs! Bugs! Bugs! by Bob Barner.
|We had toast with butter and honey on it as a snack. It provided a good opportunity to talk about bee hives, making honey and pollination.|
|One of our activities was to paint a beehive and then made fingerprint bees.|
|Had the rain not washed it away , this would have greeted our friends in our driveway. But it was a good jumping off point the evening before to start talking to my son about bees, so that bees were on his brain.|
