Jay talking to kids about his observation hive.
Me, talking to one of our many child visitors.
Everyone looked for the queen but we never found her (she's probably in the box below instead of walking around on the frame that was lifted up).
Here are pictures of the many kids in bee veils who stopped, tried them on and were willing to have their picture taken.
They had a great time and so did we!

Wish I had known about the festival would have come.
How many parents did you connect with?

those kids are future bee keepers. you are doing a very honorable thing for exposing them to bee keeping.ReplyDelete
I've been thinking of getting one of those exhibition hives. That made me think - has anyone ever kept one of these inside all winter long as an emergency reserve nuc? WOuld that work?ReplyDelete
Hey, here's a guy who does winter a observation hive: http://beenatural.wordpress.com/plans/observation-hive/ReplyDelete
Those kids seem to be so eager to learn more about bees. And I am sure they got pretty excited wearing those beekeeper hats. I hope more and more children would take interest about nature.ReplyDelete
Going back to those beekeeper hats, what do you have there? the ones with detachable veils?
The hat with the yellow outlined veil came with my Dadant bee suit. The other one I ordered for my four year old grandson. The Dadant one has a veil over a helmet. The other has a veil that cannot attach.ReplyDelete
wow. your grandson must be really proud to have his own beekeeper'hat. I'm sure his playmates envy him for having such a cool hat. thanks to his granny.ReplyDelete
