An educational game designed to teach kids all about honey bees!

I’m very excited to announce the release of my new educational kid’s bee game! I created this game several years ago to enhance my children’s bee classes and have been having a blast playing it ever since! I’ve finally got around to creating a hard copy for other bee lovers and educators and it’s now available in my web shop! Now thorugh 10/16/16 enjoy free shipping with the US and discounted international shipping!

About the Game:

Enter the fascinating world of honey bees with this imaginative and educational game! Children will delight as they become part of a swarm in search of a new nesting site. Each child assumes the role of a worker bee with special job assignments to help their colony grow. As they act out their jobs, a compelling tale unfolds: The Story of Bees! Children will buzz, run, sing and dance their way through colony life all while learning real, factual information about bees. They will face threats, make sacrifices and overcome it together, illustrating the benefits of teamwork. The Story of Bees! is flexible and can be played in a variety of settings with mixed ages and with a large range of group sizes.

This game is an original creation by Girl Next Door Honey founder Hilary Kearney and was illustrated by the talented Timothy Winchester!

It is a great addition to classroom curriculum that helps to reinforce interesting bee facts and offers an opportunity to teach larger positive lessons like leadership, teamwork and problem solving. It’s perfect for project based learning and developing the whole child. Hilary has also played this game with girl scout troops, homeschool groups and her own nieces and nephews! The Story of Bees! will help children retain valuable lessons about bees an life through educational play.

    This game is educational and SO much fun to play with kids! I played this multiple times with my first graders as part of our honey bee unit last year and they had a blast while learning about swarming and all the different jobs that workers take on as part of a colony!

      Unfortunately, I have to raise $6,000 to be able to reorder the game and I am not sure when I will have enough money to do that.
