Bees for kids…
Our boys are really lucky because their granddad has recently acquired beehives!
We have learnt so much about honey bees that I have made a little recap of 5 fascinating bee facts for you to talk about with your little ones. Enjoy!
- There are 3 types of honey bees:
- Worker bees (female)
- Queen bees (female)
- Drone bees (male)
- There is only one queen bee in a beehive. She makes babies with the drone bees and gives birth to all the other bees from the beehive.
- Depictions of humans collecting honey from wild bees date to 10,000 years ago and honey is called the only food that truly lasts forever.
- Worker bees live around 6 weeks whilst a queen can live up to 6 years!
- We need to take great care of honey bees because by transferring pollen from flowers to flowers, honey bees pollinate them, which allows fruits and vegetables to grow.
