Action Rhyme: “Bumblebee, Bumblebee”
Bumblebee, bumblebee, landing on my nose.
Bumblebee, bumblebee, now he’s on my toes.
On my arms, on my legs, on my elbows.
Bumblebee, bumblebee he lands and then he goes.

Craft

This was another Oriental Trading purchase; everyone was THRILLED with it. I have to agree, ladybug is super cute!

How It Went

This was the first session of Spring II and I had a FULL house! For whatever reason, the kids were not having any activities this week, other than the flannelboards, which I was glad I had two prepped! This wasn’t a super original storytime — I did it last year too. But it’s a theme that is always a crowd-pleaser, so I’m happy to do it again.
