Buzzing Bee School for Kids
Time for some buzzing bee fun!
Bring the kids along to our 1 hour engaging and educational programs to teach young minds about the importance of bees.
Your kids will:
- get up close and personal with live honey bees from one of the resident Hives at Burnetts on Barney, through a viewing frame.
- learn about pollination, nectar, bee life cycles, how bees make honey, and how we cant survive without them.
- learn about honey bee anatomy by colouring in the parts of the bees.
- learn why it is crucial we keep planting as many flowering plants as we can to ensure all our native and honey bees survive
- get to taste some honey straight from one of our hives.
- try on a real beekeeper suit !
Ideal for primary kids aged 5 - 12 years.
Children should wear warm clothes and closed-toe shoes and bring a water bottle. The workshop will be outside around the cafe area of Burnetts on Barney.
Parents welcome to stay or have a coffee at the Quarry Cafe and make use of the time to do some garden shopping at the award-winning nursery - Burnetts on Barney. Think of all the plants you can take home and plant with your newly inspired kids :)
$1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Wheen Bee Foundation, a group doing incredible research work on bee and habitat improvement and sustainability
