Talking about Bees with the Daisy Scouts

I had fun going to my granddaughter Lily’s Daisy Scout meeting yesterday. Wild little bunch of fleas, but I believe I was able to build on my daughters previous presentation, with coloring pages of the different types of bees, the jobs they did, their life cycle, etc. The big hits of the hour was the snack of bread and honey and everyone getting to try on my grandchildren’s bee keeping suit:) Some beautiful smiling young faces

And my little beekeeping buddy, Lily Lynn, age 6. She has been helping run her pink hive since she was 3!!

I love that you're talking to young children about keeping bees. To many little kids are terrified of bees and don't know how beneficial they are.

Some of the Daisy Scouts first reaction was to say they were scared of bees, Anke. Hopefully they understand more now. thanks for visiting xx

A very good idea to do with the kids - they had fun.
It's a wonderful idee to teach them about bees.
