Half term fun at garden centre.

Youngsters are invited to get a buzz from fun sessions being held at a Rugby garden centre this half term.

Wyevale Garden Centre will be holding a series of special events from May 27 to June 3.

The events aimed at children aged between three and eight, are designed to entertain, inspire and encourage little ones by teaching them about the vital role that bees play in the pollination process by encouraging flowering plants to bloom.

Through themed activities children will learn when the bee season begins, which flowers attract bees the most and how pollination helps to make gardens beautiful.

The week kicks off with the Busy Bee Hunt from May 27 to 30, when children are invited to find six busy bees hidden all around the garden centre.

Each bee holds a question and children who answer their questions will receive a Busy Bee sticker.

Throughout the week children will also have the chance to create a special nesting site for bees by building a Bee Hotel, cook bee-themed sweet treats including buzzing bee cupcakes and honey biscuits in the Buzzing Bakery, and plant their own beautiful bee-friendly flower and decorate the pot with bee cut-outs.

If that doesn’t sound like enough fun for the half-term holidays, all activities include a free activity sheet to take home or complete in centre so children can continue learning about the magic of bees.
