Create a waldorf wool bee

make a woollen bee
Rub Some Dirt On It has a mini tutorial for making these warm woollen bee decorations that look great hung anywhere in the house or even outside.
You will need small pinecones and yellow and black wool amongst other things. We love the rustic nature of these creations and that little hands can help to make them.

Taste
Honey bees have been found to be able to distinguish between sweet, sour, bitter and salt, and thus have a sense of "taste."
Bees are more sensitive to salts than humans, but less sensitive to bitter flavors.

Learning about being bee friendly

Students at St Joseph’s RC Primary School, Malvern, UK have created a bee-friendly garden.
The School is officially a BEE-FRIENDLY ZONE thanks to the hard work of all the pupils who:
  • chose the bee theme after learning about threats to the bee population and the importance of bees in pollinating vital foods
  • raised money to get experts to come and teach them what kinds of plants to grow
  • created imaginative new habitats in the school grounds
