A Field Trip to the Bee Farm

A very nice family who raises honey bees on their farm offered to do a field trip for our homeschool group to their house and planned some fun activities for us while we were there.

First, their daughter who is a junior beekeeper did a talk for us on beekeeping and showed us all of her equipment, including her suit.






After the young lady finished her talk, we had an opportunity to try out some lip balm, make beeswax candles, and a candy made from honey and sunflower seeds.










Then we made a fun craft using egg shells filled with confetti, rolled up newspapers and streamers.






We also go to go outside and see their chickens and the bee hives (from a distance.)  It was a fun, and educational inexpensive field trip.
