Bee Snacks

Honeybees: Honeybunch Balls


Mix sunflower seeds, cocoa, raisins, and granola in a mixing bowl. Add the peanut butter and honey and mix thoroughly. Give each child a heaping teaspoonful of the mixture to roll into a ball. Coat each ball by rolling in coconut.

Busy Buzzers


Mix together the peanut butter and the honey. Stir in the nonfat dry milk, sesame seeds, and wheat germ until well mixed. Lay a piece of wax paper on the table and shape a teaspoonful of dough into a bee-shaped oval.

Dip a toothpick into the cocoa powder and press it gently across the top of the bee to make stripes. Use the sliced almonds for wings. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Recipe makes approximately 28 bees.

Bees and Butterflies


Make flower petals from tissue paper and attach them to paper cups. Fill the cups with juice. Have the children use straws to sip their nectar just like the bees.
