Let’s get buzzy learning about bees

Oh how I love the humble bumble bee. It’s fluffy, round and even its Latin name, bombus, is delightful.

This week I had a chat with Paul Hethington from charity Buglife, who was able to give me the buzz on all things bee.

Bees inspired this week’s craft too, but I’m sure you could interpret it to look like your favourite insect. Try black for spider beads or red with spots for ladybirds. You could even add little wings for butterfly beads.

When you’ve finished, try my bee quiz, kindly provided by Friends of the Earth.
