Are bees frightening for your child?
I’ve found that reading about bees to learn more about them is helpful. Children will benefit from know more about bees, what they do, and why they are important.
The book Give Bees a Chance by Bethany Barton is one of my favorites for educating myself and then being able to help children understand their important job and that they don’t actually want to sting us.
Your child will want to play this game over and over again! The best part about that is that the game is a quick one. Your child will have fun playing and practice counting all at the same time.
How to Play the Bee Counting Game:
- Download (below) and print the board game and cards.

- Player 1 picks a card, counts the bees, and moves their game piece that many spaces.

- Play continues until one player has gotten to the beehive.
