BEES! A Musical - At-Home Activities

To accompany the online stream of 'BEES! A Musical', we have created a selection of activities connected to the show for children aged 6+ to enjoy at home.

Did you know that there are more than 20,000 different types of bees? The bumble bee, the solitary bee, the mining bee, the spelling bee, the vitamin B...

And then there’s Mel, who is a honey bee. She can’t find her colony. She got left behind, you see. In fact, she’s not even sure how to be a bee!

On the journey to find her home she has some amazing adventures as she meets Luke, the bumblebee and Marsha, the solitary bee. She learns how to fly, discovers some of the dangers in her world, finds her first flowers and experiences the value of true friendship along the way.

BEES! is a funny, factual foray into the lives of pollinators and their importance for us humans which will have you singing along and leaving with a mission to fill your world with bee-friendly plants.

Find out more about our online stream of BEES! or watch online from Thursday 23 April at 12pm until Wednesday 29 April at midnight here.

Using the worksheets below, children aged 6+ can engage in a variety of activities which tie into the show, before or after watching the show online, or just on their own!
