Child Friendly Shows
Beekeeping at events provide an opportunity to educate. Beekeepers can demonstrate, interact so stimulating children's desire to learn. Children want to show off what they can do. If we can catch their interest they also want to learn.
We are are usually part of a bigger event, adults are rushing round to see everything and the children are often dragged away even though they are interested. This means that displays must be eye-catching, the children's activities have to be short and not too demanding yet interesting.
Displays of children's pictures, models etc, enliven the show and reach our objectives. Schools can be asked to contribute displays on a bee topic. These could form part of a competition and also provide a showcase for the school.
