Bee hive with egg cartons? You bet! This is such a clever idea for a display in a bee themed classroom or after studying bees in science for other elementary classrooms. This could also be a great back to school board.
have the umbrella have a number on it on a board, hand each kid a few raindrops and then call up the number on the umbrella. say "who has 'one' raindrop" they will come up, find and place it on umbrella w matching number.
