Bug Songs


Bee Hive (Put your hands together like a bee hive and say the following.)

This is my bee hive, but where are the bees,

Hidden inside where nobody sees,

One, two, three, four, five, (pop fingers up while counting, and then buzz with the children.)


My kids love the song “I’m Bringing Home a Baby Bumblebee.”

Editor’s Note: Here are two versions of this song. The first one is the traditional version, and the second one is a version I came up with. – Daylene

Traditional Baby Bumblebee Song

I’m bringin home a baby bumble bee,
Won’t my mama be so proud of me,
I’m bringin home a baby bumble bee,

Ouch! That bumblebee stung me!

I’m smashing up the baby bumblebee,
Won’t my mama be so proud of me,
I’m smashing up the baby bumblebee, 

Yuck! It’s all over me!

I’m wiping off the baby bumblebee,
Won’t my mama be so proud of me,
I’m wiping off the baby bumblebee,

Uh-oh! Here comes mommy!

Daylene’s Baby Bumble Bee Song

I’m bringin home a baby bumble bee,
Won’t my mama be so proud of me,
I’m bringin home a baby bumble bee,

Yuck! That bumblebee got honey all over me!

I’m tasting the honey from the bumblebee,
Won’t my mama be so proud of me,
I’m tasting the honey from the  bumblebee,

Yuck! It’s all over me!

I’m wiping off the honey from the bumblebee,
Won’t my mama be so proud of me,
I’m wiping off the honey from the bumblebee,


Uh-oh! Here comes mommy!
