Get counting this Summer with buzzing bees with these (free) bee counting cards PLUS work on those fine muscles too!
We are joining the fun Summer Camp for Preschoolers series today with our Bee counting cards!
Simply print these counting cards(find it on our Freebies page, access instructions below), turn yellow pompoms into “bees” and voilà, you have a great counting and fine motor activity OR a busy bag activity for your preschooler!
You can use mini erasers or buttons shaped like bees, but, if you do not have those on hand, simply make bees from pompoms. It is super easy, just draw black lines across with a marker! (I used the fabric Sharpie ones.) Easy and inexpensive too!
Add a plastic tweezers/tongs to the setup and you have a fun counting activity for your bee theme/unit!
The child should be able to recognize the number on the card, then count out that number of pompoms, placing it on the beehive with the tweezer.
Pop the cards, pompom bees and tweezer in a small bag and you have a travel-friendly busy bag!
A fun bee-themed counting and number recognition activity that your preschooler will love!

This is so cute! I love the idea of using the cards and pom poms to help kids practice their counting skills.
