Then I asked how many bees we had today? we counted together 1 - 2! (the big bee hand puppet took a break today; we just used the finger puppets this time!)
(add bees to board one at a time)
we repeated it with our hands as a fingerplay.
(count on fingers)
BUZZZZ!! (shake fingers on both hands)
Finally, I brought out my new beehive prop and passed out bees to all the toddlers! (i printed & laminated a clipart beehive then i cut a hole in the middle & taped it to an old plastic yellow box.)
(handed out bees to kids one at a time as we counted)

Great program and two fun groups today! Impossible to choose my favorite parts because it was all so fun! Everyone loved when i pulled out the beehive prop so that was awesome! the craft was a little more complex than i usually do but they really liked it! a great day!
