Bees and Butterflies Preschool Theme

Bees and Butterflies

 

In February I posted my Food, Fitness and Human Body Preschool Theme. Since then it has received over 1,00o views..WHAT! I am honored, yet I know how busy moms want to create fun preschool themes for their little ones and have all the ideas in ONE place. I know that I do!

We just finished learning and exploring Bees & Butterflies and I am so excited to share with you the crafts, printables, books and games that we used to make your planning job easier. The way I see it, creativity isn’t my strength so I am a gatherer of ideas and am so thankful for other blogs/websites that have such great ideas, however I thrive on planning and wish to bless others with my organizational skills ;)

Here we go….

Bees & Butterflies All in One Kit

For this theme I used Mother Goose Time as my foundation. What I love about Mother Goose Time is that they are themed based kits and all the supplies for crafts and games are included which makes my planning and gathering much easier. If you have read any of my other preschool posts you know that I love using MGT. I do not follow their lesson plans exactly, but I can’t get enough of their adorable crafts and fun learning ideas.

I understand that not everyone can spend the money to purchase a themed kit for just one month (although I make mine last 2-3 months). Here is their topic breakdown for Bees & Butterflies which can help you in organizing a B&B’s unit for yourself.

I don’t want to reinvent the wheel. In Lieu of Preschool did a phenomenal job of compiling Bee and Butterfly activities from other bloggers.

We have enjoyed playing this game, its similar to Jenga! Find HoneyComb on Amazon.

Live Butterfly Garden

Growing your own butterfly from caterpillar state is a must do science experiment. This is one of the most popular live butterfly gardens found on Amazon.

Bee and Butterfly Crafts

We used our Mother Goose Time for several crafts yet Pinterest is my next go to site for all things crafty. Check out my Bees & Butterflies Pinterest Board for several great craft ideas.
