    How many hives you got? Also do you personally want to do the work or have the bees do it with you helping?

    heres sort of a simple way,just take a frame of larvae and put them above the brood chamber with a queen excluder between them make sure the queen is below the excluder and let them raise some queen cells.Then just transfer the cells to your splits.
