Bees and Beeswax Candles8:00 PM
Recently we were able to take a trip to a little farm that raises various animals including bees! All the kids were excited to see the donkey who came up to be petted. They could see goats and pigs keeping cool in the shade, and there were numerous birds: emus, chickens, ducks, geese, and peacocks!
After a tour to look at the animals the owners of the farm gave us a little lesson in bees. We got to look inside their hive and see where they were storing up honey. We also learned more about bees including why they die when they sting you.
Then we got to make a beeswax candle! These were super simple to make too! You start with a sheet of beeswax and a wick. Lay the wick across the top of the beeswax and press it in gently (just so it sticks).
