As we were walking to school one day, we noticed a cherry blossom tree starting to bloom, early. Awed by its premature beauty, in a gaze, others were just as happy to welcome this early-bloomer, the bees. Quietly collecting nectar from the pink budding branches, we watched and waited and welcomed this delightful dance in anticipation of Spring. I wanted to, just as joyfully, welcome these sweet little creatures into our Sensory Bin, Learning Table … and our Shop.

Welcome, Bees.

Included in each set is one Rainbow Hive, and six miniature friends, each with tiny, colorful wingspans. The hive has room enough for the whole family to nest – such a great fine motor skill builder, even the bees would be impressed. They would be more than happy to meet, collectively swirling about their hive. Match up the colors and tuck them inside.

Use them as a teaching tool for colors. Use them as inspiration for discussions about Spring, Nature, Pollination, and Honey. This set is meant to be an “Add On” to a Sensory Bin – small enough to hide among, rice, beans, noodles, paper, confetti, or lentils. What a great little something for your little entomologist to find while excavating.

Each Hive measures just over 2” tall with six holes, one for each member of the family. It has been painting with a non-toxic watercolor wash and lightly sealed with an all natural beeswax.

Each little honey measures a little more than 1” long. Included is one of each color: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple. The wings have been painted with a non-toxic watercolor wash, and lightly sealed with beeswax.

Just as real bees, these are delicate critters. They are not intended for little hands (or mouths). My 4 year old is enjoying this in her Learning Center this Spring. As with all of the toys in the Rainbow Series, this set is not intended for little ones who still mouth things and is not meant to get wet. This set has small pieces and could pose a choking hazard risk. As with all toys, supervision is advised.
