Bumblebee Party Ideas

I have a soon to be 2 year old. He LOVES bumblebees. I found some plates and cups and I am making my own invitations. Can anyone think of some cute decorations or games? I would love to hear any ideas you have.


Thank you!

Pin the stinger on the bee, instead of pin the tail on the donkey.

Draw and color a big bee on a box that has been taped shut. Cut circles into it and make little bee beanbags to toss into them. We did this for my grandsons birthday party(except his was a gorilla) and the kids had a great time with it. Afterward, each little guest took their beanbag home.

I did both these ideas for a Winney the Pooh party:

1. Take clothes pins and paint, or glue on, colored paper to make them look like bumble bees. "Google Eyes" can be glued on for fun.

Take a ceramic pot (or other "Bucket") and write or tape the word "HONEY." Have the kids stand on a chair and try to drop the bees into the honey or try to toss them in the honey pot.

2. Have each child decorate a Twinkie into a Bee.

Make the Twinkie the body. With frosting glue on thin licorice laces in lines across the top of the body.

Next glue on thinly sliced halved orange slices for wings, a candy kiss for the stinger, and chocolate chips for the eyes. These can be eaten as their own individual birthday cakes, or put on a paper plate or coffee filter to take home.

3. Make Bumblebee antennas. You need black head bands, black pom-poms, and yellow pipe cleaners. Glue the Pom-poms on the ends of the pipe cleaners (Or wrap the pipe cleaner around them.) Next, wrap the other end of the 2 pipe cleaners around the top of the headband.

The shorter the antennas, the better they will stand up.

You could also play "pin the bee on the beehive". Make a beehive our of brown paper - maybe a grocery bag, then make paper bees backed with masking tape.

You might have the children pretend they are "things that fly" They could "buzz and fly like a bumble bee", "soar like an eagle", "fly like a plane", and even "fly like a kite".

You might, also, do a search on preschool curriculum sites to find activities on bees. Another idea is to paint some flowers - use the cup of an egg carton with a green pipecleaner stem.

Pin the wings on the Bumble-Bee. I tried the stinger idea with the 3 year olds at a church camp one summer and they were afraid to play with the stinger of a bee. Since we had made the bee from felt and construction paper, it was easy to take apart and use the wings instead. I suggest making a set of wings for each kid, we had a hard time using one set with 14 active 3 year olds. Make sure to use materials that the kids won't be able to swallow.
