Bees are produce natural sweet for our dessert, snacks which are good for our health. Join in the battle to keep the bees alive and be a participant and make a difference!
How are you all dealing with all the activities this summer. There are many ideas we think of to keep our children entertained for the summer. These are some of our activities which relates to how Bees Important in My Life, Honey!:
- assist the needy
- learn more about environment
- help the environment
We keep this list quite short. The first six weeks are busy preparing for the following school year. Boredom is not something that happens in their lives. The following weeks is filled with completing our plan and it keeps our youths entertained and busy.
Assist the Needy
As normal, we assist a family or two with backpacks and school essentials and utilities. We would ask neighbors or church members or simply a member in our community who is in need and present them with these gifts a few weeks before school begins. We are normally rewarded with some BIG smiles and a happy spontaneous “Thank You!” Seeing others happy is our greatest reward!
Learn about the Environment
We are always learning about our environment as this keeps a group of children in the neighborhood happy and excited. This year, we have been hearing lots about our honey bees needing help. Well, we decided to do some research as we are a family that enjoys eating honey with our food: dessert, breakfast or fruits and snacks.
We found out that the bees are the only insect that produce food that human enjoys eating. It concerns us greatly to lean in our research that the bees population has been declining rapidly. It is important that you are aware that the bees helps to pollinate and helps our favorite food to grow. We certainly are happy as some of these food are our favorite vegetarian foods: apples, almond, walnuts, mangoes and strawberries. Well, and most importantly: honey!
Help the Environment
It is dreadful to know that we can make an impact and help the bees. You can help as well by planting little gardens and help the bees survive naturally. Did you know that the bees have favorite colors? Oh yes they do! They are blue, purple, violet, and yellow! Now you can help by planting your favorite color roses or flowers and make a difference in your lives and that of the bees. You can also plant those wild flowers of many colors as they enjoy the nectar to remain healthy and happy. I have a few selection of plants that are good sources of nectar or pollen for bees. Sharing the common and latin names below.
The wildflower I have in my garden:
- Sage Salvia
Some native plants I have in my garden:
- English lavender Lavandula
- Rosemary Rosmarinus
- Basil Ocimum
You can also make a short list and encourage the kids to learn and challenge themselves during the summer. Some kids in our neighborhood are either busy listening to music, creative drawing something or creating some form of art in the spare time. There are so many amazing journey at this time in their lives besides shopping.
Please share with us your favorite color and what is your favorite wildflowers you will attempt to plant and help to build the pollinating bees population? We would appreciate reading your comment below. Hasta la vista!
