Little Explorer & Me: Honeybees

We’ve changed the name! Since we know that Daddies, Grandparents, and Caretakers like to join the fun too, our early childhood program, previously known as Mommy & Me, is now called Little Explorer & Me!

Visit the North Museum on August 31 with your Little Explorer and get the buzz buzz buzz about Bees!

At each Little Explorer & Me, enjoy free coffee and meet other Lancaster parents (Moms, Dads, Grandparents, and Caretakers). Bring your little ones, 5 and under, to the Explore Nature Gallery at the North Museum for a hands-on introduction to science and nature.

August’s program is all about the honeybee. The only insect that provides food for humans is a fascinating subject to study for your budding scientist. The North Museum’s Observation Hive lets your child get an up-close view of honeybees at work and a new appreciation for the hard workers that make sure our crops are pollinated.

Activities Planned Include:

  • Be a Bee: Get moving to transfer pollen from one flower to another
  • Discover how a honeybee sees
  • Create your own honeybee stripe pattern
  • Explore items from the Museum collections including real honeycomb, bees, and wasps
