Baby Bumblebee Song and Movement


Some ideas are so good, you have to copy them just the way they are.

This is one of those ideas.

Squishy, smooshy baby bumblebees made from balloons filled with flour...and motions to accompany a memorable childhood song? Yes, please.

Here's the original post from The Inspired Tree House.

To make the bumblebees, you'll need:

Yellow balloons (I used 9")

Funnel

All purpose flour

Black Sharpie marker

*I also found a pencil handy for packing a little extra flour into the balloons.

Making our bumblebees...

I drew on stripes and smiley faces with the black Sharpie marker. So cute!

Next came some backyard bumblebee play with movement and dance...

Baby Bumblebee

I'm bringing home a baby bumble bee, Won't my mommy be so proud of me? I'm bringing home a baby bumble bee! Ouch! It stung me! (Carry the bee carefully...we "balanced" on a jumprope)

I'm squishing up my baby bumble bee, Won't my mommy be so proud of me? I'm squishing up my baby bumble bee! Yuck! It's so squishy! (Squeeze the bee with one hand, then the other, then both hands)

I'm tossing up my baby bumble bee, Won't my mommy be so proud of me? I'm tossing up my baby bumble bee! Yay! I can catch, see? (Toss and catch with the right hand, left hand, or both hands - or to a partner!)

I'm hopping with my baby bumble bee, Won't my mommy be so proud of me? I'm hopping with my baby bumble bee! Wow! I'm strong as can be! (Hop on one feet, or jump on two feet. You could switch it up with galloping, skipping...)

I'm passing 'round my baby bumble bee, Won't my mommy be so proud of me? I'm passing 'round my baby bumble bee! He's hiding! Can't you see? (Pass the bee around your body, from one hand to the other - could also pass around knees, ankles, head)

Here is the Song Printable from The Inspired Tree House.

Carrying the baby bumblebee...

Squishing the baby bumblebee...

Tossing up (and catching) the baby bumblebee...

Passing 'round the baby bumblebee...

Hiding the baby bumblebee...

They couldn't wait to nestle those baby bumblebees into the sandbox!

So cute. So fun. And something we've gone back to a few times already this week.
