Buzzing Beeswax Candles (Ages 6-12) at Botanic Garden

April 18 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

What would it be like to be a honeybee? How do bees communicate? What does a beehive look like? Learn the answer to these questions as we visit the honeybee hives at the Garden. Learn to identify the parts of a bee, explore a beekeeper’s tools, and investigate the process of pollination. Explore some of the things that bees can make and build and then craft your own beeswax candles using a simple rolling technique. Take these candles home and light them in celebration of the bees!
Please note this class is for children with or without their adult companions.
