2. Handprint Bee Puppet
Handprint activities are always one of my favorite craft activities.
Younger children absolutely love having their hands colored and playing around.
In our case turn your children’s handprints into a bee puppet and let them use it for their puppet theater afterward. They are so much fun!
3. Bee Counting Game
We love to turn all our activities into educational resources. In this case practice counting with bees. Make adorable flowers with numbers for the bees to match.
In this bee game tutorial, they used colored bee stones but you can easily use our small bee printables as well. Simply color each bumblebee and write the number on the back of each bee.
4. Beehive Craft
Bees live in beehives, it is their home. So it comes naturally to include a beehive craft with our bee activities. It gives you a good chance to talk about bees and their life.
In this tutorial, they made the bees with help of round sponges. But why not have it easier and use our bee template printables instead?
I also added some fun bee facts and books for you at the end in case you want to check them out.

We love to recycle mainly everything and turn it into fun projects.
For this easy preschool bee craft, you can use your toilet paper rolls and old newspaper.
You will be surprised how cute they will turn out. It is the perfect bee craft for preschoolers.
First, your children need to color the toilet paper roll in yellow and black, fold it as shown in the instruction, and then add the wings and other body parts.
It is super easy, go check it out!
6. Bee Story Time
After you made all these wonderful bumblebee crafts above it is time to hold storytime and use your crafts as show and tell.
Do you remember the storytimes in the local libraries?
They read a book and used the matching puppets or other resources to explain the subjects or tell the story.
Our bee cut out templates are perfect for this bee activity for toddlers and preschoolers.
Make the handprint puppet above for example to help you tell your bee story, or use our printable bees to match with a bee counting book.
The possibilities are endless.
Or if you do not like to craft ahead, use them to add an easy bee craft at the end.
