Busy Bees

Our whole family's been into bees lately. Michael wants to have a backyard beehive, which I was not too keen on until a couple weeks ago when we saw Silence of the Bees on PBS. Wow- these creatures are amazing! Fully one THIRD of the food in the US relies on bees for pollination. I had no idea. And, for a number of known and unknown reasons bees are disappearing, so having a hive would be good. Also, I like honey. Anyhow- James is interested in them too so we've been reading about bees and the other day made the bee below out of a toilet paper tube, an old envelope and a magazine, pipe cleaners and glue. I am really having fun making things with James now that he's getting old enough to get into it.
