Thanks to our favourite local bee keeper, our bee-learning this fall took on a hands-on dimension. The kids LOVE bees. They totally get it. They get that we eat from the garden (and the stores) thanks to the bees. They are fascinated by these creatures – we all are. And we all love their sweet, sticky goods, too. Even though Chris tells us it is basically bee vomit. Great imagery there. You’re welcome.
I was blown away by the bravery in these kiddos. Milo held back just a bit (also the only one without gloves on), and Cohen and Breann each held a male bee – we learned that males don’t sting – in their bare hands. READ FULL POST HERE.
