A friendly swarm of Bees (experienced crèche workers) host a hive of activity in their play space. The crèche caters for children on a 3:1 ratio and offers three 3-hour sessions daily. The crèche provides a safe play space, with indoor and outdoor fun for 2-7 yr olds. Enjoy the festival knowing your little one is having as much fun as you are, learning about the buzz of the bees.

Each session will offer a wide range of activities:
A chill-out space for reading books and playing with age-related toys and jigsaws
A covered sandpit with buckets and spades
A music and dancing space.
The honey dance and our personal favourite dance - the 'Buzz-buzz-buzz-wiggle-wiggle-wiggle' - both explain how the Bees dance in the hive to alert other bees to fresh pollen
An outdoor space for ball games, hula hoops and general games (weather permitting)

Workshops include:

Making bees in a variety of shapes and sizes using cardboard, pipe cleaners etc.
Making bee bunting to decorate the crèche and themselves
Weaving and cross stitching
Tissue paper flowers for our art garden flowers to attract bees into our crèche
Making battery-operated night lanterns to take away
Hands on Arts and Crafts - plenty of sticking and gluing, painting and drawing, all with a bee theme
The Living Wild Flower Garden which will look at flowers and help children remember their names. Also planting seeds, digging and potting and talking about why bees are so important in pollinating plants to make them grow.
