1. Take a bee tour of your garden or local park
Our buzzing little friends are always out-and-about. Next time you’re on a sunny afternoon stroll, take a look at the native plants around you, and you might just find a very excited little honey bee inside!
2. Learn a new cooking skill
There are so many ways your kids can get involved in baking and creating. From learning the importance of measuring to hand-mixing and decorating, it’s fun no matter their age.
3. Try a honey tasting!
Have a few Capilano honey varieties at home? Close your eyes and see if you and your little ones can taste the difference, with notes varying from rich and caramel, to light and fruity – you might be surprised how unique each honey type can taste!
The best way to help our little honey-making friends is by planting flowers all year round! No matter where you live, bees are attracted to sunshine, colour and fresh water, so why not find some native flowers to plant in the garden, and keep them hydrated with a shallow fresh-water bath!?
5. Create a home cinema
Take some old sheets and wrap them around some chairs, securing them with pegs from the clothesline and finish with lots of pillows. There’s no better place for them to enjoy their homemade snacks than in their own private cinema! Complete the experience with some Honeyed Caramel Popcorn.
