    My granddaughters (10 years and 21 months) are both obsessed with bees at the moment. We had to rescue a bumble bee last week and give it some sugar water to sip on.

    ditto... I have had a day playing in hives... and they are just fascinating creatures who mostly ignore you! After an initial hesitance I just got about the obs we were asked to, and then you end up looking down and being amazed that your hands are covered in bees who just see you as a 'thing' not a threat or a problem. I found it gloriously calming. I understand that if a bee thinks you are a problem, then calm is the last thing life can be, but staying calm is king!

    honey would be nice side benefit.
