Oh the simple joys of summer and the beauty of experiencing the world through a child’s eyes. This little bee was sure a sight to see in our backyard (as you can hear by the excitement in the sweet voice in the background).
This happy little moment inspired me to share a simple and fun honeybee song with you on a lovely summer day. This one, “Honeybees, Honeybees,” is from my Song and Rhyme Alphabet Cards. You can say it as a rhyme, sing it to the tune of “Sing a Song of Sixpence,” or set it to your own little tune. It goes like this:
Honeybees, honeybees flying in the sun
Through the summer garden with a gentle hum
Tasting all the flowers, one by one
They do a happy honey dance when the day is done
Fly around just like a honeybee, pretending to stop at each flower to take a taste. It’s fun to make up your own happy honeybee dance at the end of the song too! :)
After you sing is a lovely opportunity to practice a little mindfulness and relaxation with some gentle honeybee hums. Take a deep breath in and then let out a long hmmmm sound, just like a honeybee makes.
Wishing you a bee-autiful day!
