This week's Finger Play is all about Bees!

Finger Play Fun Day - Here is the Beehive

We are in the middle of another week of Explore Music Camp so I had my music campers help me with this week's video!
I used felt bee finger puppets that I had made but since I didn't have enough for the children, I just drew happy faces on all their fingers.

Here is the Beehive

Here is the beehive
But where are all the bees?
Hidden away where nobody sees.
Watch and they will come out of the hive.

Here is another fun one about bees!

Five Little Bees

One little bee blew 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
buzz away bess and find another flower.

Words for both finger plays can be found at Gayle's Preschool Rainbow.

Be sure to check out these wonderful Counting Bee Printables including bee finger puppets made by Wise Owl Factory.

  1. Perfect for summer as it is about time children will be noticing bees more and more. They will be less afraid if they understand how amazing bees are. Your music selections are so fun yet educational. Thank you for sharing so others can replicate your learning! Carolyn
