DIY cork bee mobile
It’s that time of year – you walk under a tree and the NOISE from the buzzing of the bees is amazing!
We all love honey right? Well – let’s enjoy and save the bees whilst we have a chance. We found an amazingly informative poster by Hannah Rosengren over on misakomimoko’s blog – showing all of the best flowers to grow to encourage bees – and what an amazing little craft project too!
A great craft to do together to discuss the plight of the bee – and what we can do to save them, and a really simple craft for smaller kids to do, you just have to save some wine corks, that’s all! (shouldn’t be too tricky, but you can buy them in bulk – see link below)
This would be a brilliant classroom activity, and takes the kids outdoors too to collect the materials to make the ‘halo’ – for full instructions and fabulous photos (and that save the bees poster we mentioned earlier) click through and check out misakomimoko here
