Age Range: 19 months to 5 years

Toddlers and preschoolers alike will love pretending that their fingers are little bees as they explore their number concepts and counting up to five! Buzz like bees together for some Comfort, Play & Teach™ time.

Here is the beehive. (Hold up one fist)

Where are the bees? (Hand across eyebrows, looking)

Hidden away where nobody sees. (Point to closed hand)

Here they come buzzing

Out of the hive -

One, two, three, four and five! (Open up one finger for each number)

Enjoy this more with Comfort, Play & Teach™:

Comfort: Children feel secure when they hear familiar tunes or poems repeatedly.

Play: The playfulness of the words lets you and your child use your imagination. The more animated you are the more fun this will be for you and your tot!

Teach: Fingerplays such as this are not only a fun way to teach children numbers, but it also gets the fine motor skills moving as children try to coordinate one finger at a time coming out.
