Nature Crowns

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

 

• Paper for the crown: We used border paper, but you can use construction paper, or even printer paper. Whatever you have handy at home.

• Something sticky: We used glue dots, but regular glue, staples, and tape will work as well.

Ask Kidspace! How do Bees Make Honey?

 

Hello everyone, my name is Bruce Steele. I’m the Beekeeper here at Kidspace Children’s Museum that created and maintains the observation hive. Today we are answering this month’s “Ask Kidspace!” question from Alexis, age 6, who asked “How do bees make honey?

 

Great question! The field bees travel up the tube of the observation hive and fly out the exit to find flowers. They can travel several miles, but usually find blooming plants closer than that. They gather nectar from many of these flowers and bring it back to the hive in their honey stomach (see diagram).

MasterChef Junior Bakes! - Meet Zia Nelson

 

 

How old were you when you started cooking?

I was about 3 or 4 when I started cooking with my mom. She is a good cook, and she got me mixing and chopping at a young age. (I’m still a little afraid of open flames though, to be honest!) You're never too young to help in the kitchen.

 

Who is your biggest cooking inspiration?
