This year over 125 Beavers and Cubs from Llangollen District met up in Ty Mawr Country Park for a ‘Buzzing’ afternoon to celebrate St Georges Day. They learnt all about Bees, how they are in danger of extinction and why we need to take care of them. The afternoon kicked off with a huge District picnic followed by the renewal of our promises.
The Beavers and Cubs then took part in Bee themed activities which were split into 4 zones. The activity zone had a Bee relay to carry pollen under their chins and lots of Bee games to play.
We were lucky to have the South Clwyd Beekeepers along to run another zone which included an informative DVD explaining all about Bees & what they do. They also bought along an observation hive with real Bees, another educational hive and Beekeeping outfits for the Beavers & Cubs to try on.
The next zone was a craft zone making Bee badges, antenna head-wear, pollen flowers which had somewhere for Bees to stop for a drink and somewhere for leaders to practice their face painting skills!
The final zone was split into sowing seeds to attract Bees & finding & identifying Queen Bees in the bug wood.
A very ‘Buzy’ time had by all!!
