I created this chore / activity chart to use with my little girl. I've decided to share it with everyone! You can download this 2 page PDF file by clicking this link http://www.hollybrookejones.com.busybees.pdf. Instructions are included in the file, however, I'm going to post them here as well. This file prints perfectly onto
a standard 8.5 inch by 11 inch paper.

Instructions:

1: Print the Busy Bees Activities chart onto card-stock.

2: Have the printed card-stock laminated or put a clear contact paper over the
images for extra protection. Feel free to skip this step if you wish.

3: Cut out beehive & bees.

4: If you wish to add any glitter or embellishments, do so now.

5: Glue some magnets to the back the beehive & one magnet to each bee.

6: Print or write some activities and/or chores onto a small piece of paper.
Here is a list of some activity ideas. Feel free to add any that would work for your childs age.

Read a book with mom. Help mom make cookies. Clean all the mirrors in the bathrooms. go tickle dad. Count how many times you can find the word the in your favorite book. Practice sight words. jump 10 times. Make pudding pops. Write a letter to Grandma. Choose a game to play with mom. Enjoy a yummy snack. Complete a worksheet Complete a (be specific) craft project. Learn to tie your shoe. Cut out your favorite pictures from some junk mail or old magazines. Make up a story about your favorite animal.

7: Fold the small paper in half (so that your child cant see what he/she is picking) and place behind each magnet.

Be sure to change out activities on a daily basis to fit your needs and to keep your child interested.

8: Set aside a time each day or week for child to complete the activities.

Here are some rules:
The child can pick any bee that he/she wants to. The child has to complete the chore or activity before moving on to the next bee.
I usually let my kids pick 6 bees a day. I usually include something fun, something educational, a chore, & a physical activity.

I hope you and your children enjoy these fun activities together.

This is such a wonderful idea!  I have three children...9, 5 & 4.  They are always complaining they are bored...wanting to go from one activity to the next, and next and next...lol  This seems like a fun way of mixing up the day Smiley  Thank you so much for sharing!
