Honey Transfer: A Fine Motor Water Activity

Transferring honey is the perfect way to bring fine motor practice to our honey bee unit! We were as busy as bees with this one!

While we are taking a bit of a break from our homeschool preschool plans this summer when my preschooler asked to learn more about honeybees I couldn't refuse! Then I saw this honeycomb silicone pot holder (we got ours at Walmart) and this fine motor invitation was a given! 

I colored water with yellow food coloring to create "honey" for the kids to transfer from the cup to the honeycomb. Toddler D waited (as patiently as a 1 1/2 year old can) for his turn. I thought he would immediately tip the pot holder but he had been watching his sister carefully. He immediately mirrored the transfer activity! 

This is only the beginning of several ways we've been keeping bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy with bee activities this summer! We'll be sharing more with you soon. In the meantime read these other fine motor activities from my Fine Motor Fridays colleagues:
