Bees work together to make a nice home for everyone. They chew up bits of waxy material to make the hive walls. Bees store their honey and also the baby bee eggs in the honeycomb. A small piece of rice is similar in size to a bee egg. The kids created a honeycomb using stamps, paint, rice and pom poms. We used play dough and different size straws to make various honeycomb designs by stamping the play dough with the different straw ends. Each child dipped their finger in honey to feel how sticky it is and then took a taste! Yummy!
We transferred pom poms from a container to an ice cube tray using our fingers, tongs & tweezers, whichever the kids wanted to use.
We also celebrated another birthday this week!
