15 Busy Bee Crafts For Kids

Learning about animals, insects, and other creepy crawlies is quite fun and very educational.  In fact, kids can’t get enough of these cute little creatures like these adorable bumble bees.

Did you know that honey bees are the world’s most important pollinator of food crops?  It’s estimated that one third of the food that we consume each day relies upon pollination by bees.  For example, many domestic and imported fruits and vegetables such as kiwis, cherries, avocados and asparagus requires pollination to grow.

Honey bees also pollinate clover and alfalfa, which are fed to cattle.  And that’s not to mention the huge range of manufactured products that are either made from or include honey as a part of their ingredients.  Believe me when I say “bees are valuable”!
