Bubble Wrap Beehive and Thumbprint Bees
I cut a piece of bubble wrap to roughly the shape of a beehive. I controlled the "product" somewhat by providing only honey-like colors - yellow, brown, and orange - to paint with. This was definitely a messy craft, as I had to help T hold down the bubble wrap while he painted on it. He also decided that at points that it would be more fun to paint the tablecloth...or my face. Thank goodness for washable paint.
Bumblebee Squishy Balloons
The Laurie Berkner Band also has a song called "Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz)"- which you can listen to here. This was fun to dance to and reinforced the buzzing sound a bumblebee makes.
