Ant Art Project
A simple glue stick project using card stock
Ant Trail Post-its
Use marker to draw ants onto a post-it pad, let your toddler peal them apart and make an ant trail --then count them!
Ant Color Match
Use colored markers to draw a board of labeled color ants and cut out corresponding ants for a simple matching game.
Ant Anatomy Puzzle
This is a simple construction paper cutout of the insect's head, thorax, and abdomen.
Bee Art Project
We sponge painted the paper plates, then used black paper for stripes. We also used a plastic bag to make wings for the bees.
Musical Bee Shaker
These were made from toilet paper tubes, colored tape, and navy beans.
These were a great addition to our music time!
String of Bees: Toddler Sewing Game
We drew bees onto plain white paper, laminated them, and punched holes in the top. We took thick ribbon (attached to a ring) and taped the end to make a toddler safe sewing game. This was also a wonderful counting game and fun toy for running and jumping!
Insect Antennae Headbands
We made these from pipe cleaners and wore them to sing "The Ants go Marching" -- a great activity to combine counting and gross motor fun.
