Our Honey Bee printables are part of a collective notebooking/lapbooking resources called Alphabugs. This is a great way to work your way through the ABC’s while learning all about amazing creepy crawlies along the way. Our Alphabugs lapbooks are similar in content with some variations, but most contain the following resources: Anatomy, Life Cycle, Habitat, Family, Communication, Bible Verse, Copywork, Crafts, Activity suggestions and more. Additionally, we’ve included a Quilt Square for each insect so you can create a classroom quilt along the way. The quilt squares are a great way to include your younger children as they include a coloring page, handwriting practice, and scissor skills. See how to make a classroom quilt here.
We got the idea for this craft from
DLTK combining their footprint and
handprint craft to make our own cute
little Honeybee. The middle part is a
footprint, and the wings are
handprints. We added stripes, a
head, face, and antennae. The
children drew on the faces
We stapled craft foam together for the band, and used gold craft wire and two pom-poms for the little balls at the end. The kids loved wearing these!test
Children can see how Honey Bees change as they grow with Insect Lore’s Honey Bee Life Cycle Stages. These oversized, anatomically correct figures have been accurately painted and sculpted to show the four stages of Honey Bee development: Egg, Larva, Pupa and Adult Honey Bee. This detailed, four-piece set is made of durable, flexible plastic and is fun and educational. Mix them up and encourage your child to place them in the correct order. Recommended for Ages 4 and up.
