I went a little overboard with bug themed felt board sets during my winter vacation and finally created the bee felt set of my dreams. I can’t recall where I found the bee template (it was not my own). If I find my way back, I will give credit as it is due.
I created a honeycomb template based on this pin I found on Pinterest. I had to free-hand draw a honeycomb, and was not super precise about lines and I think that’s pretty apparent. I’d recommend printing off a template if you own a printer.
I found an adorable rhyme on the blog Anne’s Library Life, and I’ll use this in future when I offer a bug themed storytime.
Math Minute Felt Rhyme: Five Little Bees
One little bee flew and flew.
He met a friend, and that made two.
Two little bees, busy as could be.
Along came another and that made three.
Three little bees wanted one more.
Found one soon and that made four.
Four little bees going to the hive.
Spied their little brother and that made five.
Five little bees working every hour.
Busy away, bees and find a flower.
