Discover what it's like to be a bee and transfer nectar from flowers to your hive!

Activity Instructions

Decorate a cup to make it look like a flower. Maybe paste or tape some petals and leaves, or use markers and draw some flowers!
Fill your glass with just the right amount of water and add yellow or orange food coloring to make your "nectar".
On top of a towel or newspaper for easy clean up, place your "honeycombs" (ice cube trays) next to your "flower".
Show your toddler how a bee "drinks" nectar from a flower with your eye dropper.
Give your toddler their eye dropper to practice being a bee transporting nectar to their bee hive!
Once they are done being a bee, share a real honeycomb with them!

Supplies Needed

Water
Towel or newspaper
Ice cube tray
Food coloring
Eye droppers
Honeycomb

I Wonder... 

I wonder statements are a great way to introduce concepts to children, stimulate their curiosity while modeling the pleasure of learning, and embrace ideas in a fun and unpressured way!

    I wonder how many holes you can fill in the honeycomb?
    Bee starts with the "bah" sound. I wonder what else starts with the "bah" sound? Ball? Basket? I wonder what else?
