Spring Fingerplays: Bees

The Swarm of Bees

One little honeybee by my window flew;
Soon came another - then there were two.

Two happy honeybees in the apple tree;
One more bee came buzzing up - then there were three.

Three busy honeybees starting to explore;
Another bee came to help - then there were four.

Four laden honeybees flying to the hive;
They were joined by one more bee - then there were five.

Five tired honeybees with the others mix;
Now there's a swarm of them - a hundred times six.


Bumble Bee

Sung to: "Jingle Bells"

Bumble Bee, bumble bee,
Landing on my nose,
Bumble bee, bumble bee,
Now he's on my toes.

On my arms, on my legs,
On my elbows.
Bumble bee, oh bumble bee
He lands, and then he goes.


Buzzing Bumble bees 

6 buzzing bumblebees
Flying around the hive
One buzzes off and that leaves 5.

5 buzzing bumblebees
Flying near my door,
1 buzzes off and that leaves 4

4 buzzing bumblebees
Flying around a tree,
1 busses off and that leaves 3

3 buzzing bumblebees
In the sky so blue
1 buzzes of and that leaves 2

2 buzzing bumblebees
Flying by the sun
1 buzzes off and that leaves 1

1 buzzing bumblebee
Looking for some fun
It buzzes off and that leaves none.


Bee Fingerplay

Here is the bee hive (hold fist together)
But where are all the bees (hold up hands)
Hiding very carefully
1,2,3,4,5 (Hold up fingers one at a time)
Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzz (Walk and try to sting someone)
(You can also use both hands and have 10 bees.)

Wasps on the Wall Song

5 wasps were on the wall (hold up all fingers.)
How could they hurt me, they are so small! (shrug shoulders and put hands out)
I’ll spray some water, so they will fall (pretend to spray a spray bottle)
Uh oh! I’d better run! They’re after me, five wasps in all! (Wiggle fingers.)

Buzzing Bees Song

Bees, Bees, Bees, Bees
Buzzing in bushes and buzzing in trees
Buzzing around, wherever they please
There's nothing so sweet
As sweet as a honey bee.
