Bringing Home a Baby Bumble Bee

I'm bringing home a baby bumble bee, Won't my mamma be so proud of me
I'm bringing home a baby bumble bee
Ouch! That bumblebee stung me!

I'm smashing up my baby bumblebee, Won't my mamma be so proud of me
I'm smashing up my baby bumble bee
Yuck! It's all over me!

I'm licking up my baby bumblebee, Won't my mamma be so proud of me
I'm licking up my baby bumblebee
Ugh I don't feel so good!

I'm throwing up my baby bumble bee, Won't my mamma be so proud of me
I'm throwing up my baby bumble bee.
Uh-Oh Here comes Mommy

Bumble Bee, Bumble Bee Rhyme

Bumble Bee, Bumble Bee
by the barn,
Bumble bee get Johnny,
Under the Arm

Bumble Bee, Bumble Bee
by the boulder,
Bumble bee get Johnny,
On the Shoulder

Bumble Bee, Bumble Bee
by the tree,
Bumble bee get Johnny,
Under the Knee



Arts & Crafts

Bee Hive

Use Honeycomb cereal for a great hive. Glue a grouping of the cereal pieces next to each other on a sheet of paper. For the bees, have children press thumb into yellow tempera paint (and then onto and around the hive) and then when dry add black stripes, eyes, stinger, etc.



Theme Ideas

Bee Stripes

Make a number of bees with different number of stripes. Have the children count the number of black or yellow stripes on the bee.

Be a Bee

Have the children pretend to be a bee or bug and buzz around the room.
