Buzzy Bees

A fun and silly active game


Buzzy Bees is a fun, silly and active game that can be played in person or in an online group.

How to play

One person in the game is the caller and they call out ‘buzzy bees, buzzy bees’ and then do a buzzing sound.

All the players fly about as a bee.

The caller then shouts out a letter/ colour / category.

Everyone freezes as something in the category / starting with the letter / that is the colour.

The caller then guesses what everyone is — or the players could come out of their shape to guess the others (eg. caller says ‘what is Daphne?’ everyone else stops to look at her and guess).


This works well online as long as the players can move around in their own space and still be visible on the camera.

Take it further

For more group games take a look at Woodcraft folk’s book — Games, Games, Games. This is publication with around 250 group games. The games are all essentially cooperative in nature and develop skills and attitudes which encourage learning together and supporting one another.

For another group game, you could try playing around the world. Or to get everyone up and moving, you could try singing heads, shoulders, knees and toes.

It is great we are starting to have face to face activities again – make sure you and your group stay safe by following our latest guidelines on physical meetings.
