Beavers, Bees and Butterflies

This week Beavers were learning about pollinators, bees and butterflies in particular. After learning what a pollinator is, they had a quiz about bees to learn some interesting facts.

Then they set about creating a mini wildflower meadow in some new planters out in the scout yard. They decorated bees and butterflies to bring some colour to the area while we wait for the wildflower seeds to grow.

Then they finished up with a bee themed team game. Collecting one pollen ball at a time from the yellow “flower” to bring back to their “hive” and then tag their next team member. It was a a close race with red, green and blue lodges all collecting 66 pollen balls and yellow lodge out in front with 82!!
