This printable bee template is perfect for some easy to set up quick crafting with your kids! This cute PDF is free and I’ll be sharing some ideas for how you can use it with your child as well.
For me bees are a reminder that summer is on it’s way. When I was a kid I used to be scared of them but now I’m older and understand more about the essential role they play for our planet I’m much happier to have them around.
Bees are a great topic for kids and they also fit in well with spring and summer topics for kids as well as the environment or learning about animals in general.
