I am totally one of those people who sees a bee on the floor and pours a little water from my bottle so they can have a drink while talking to them.
When talking to children about bees, I always say how important they are and how they would only sting if they are very scared so we have to make sure we don’t scare them as they die if they do sting. (Not like those nasty wasps, they can fly away!)
More to books…
These books for our littlest ones have bright colours and “peep through” lines that your children can follow with their fingers. This can support early mark-making by giving your child a chance to trace meaning their fine motor skills are being practised.
Lift the flap books also help your child with fine motor skills, plus, they are a lot of fun!
The next book relates to the beehive at Kew Gardens which has 1000 lights and music in the key of C relating to the vibrations of the bees in the wildflower meadow all around it.
Did you know, if you eat the honey from local beehives it can help you reduce symptoms of hay fever as they use the pollen of your surrounding area?
Honey also has lots of healing properties and can reduce colds and help sore throats.
Why not have a taste test of different honeys to see which your little ones like best?
Show me your bee related activities!
