When a honeybee is first born, she immediately has a chore to do – clean her room! That’s right…she needs to clean out the little cell in which she was born in order to prepare it for the next little bee to be born there.
Once the cell is clean, the Queen will lay an egg that will grow into a larvae and then a full-grown bee. After the egg is laid, the just-born bees – now called nurse bees because they will take care of the developing eggs – will feed the bees royal jelly (a super healthy bee food) and cover or cap the cell with wax.
1 cup fresh, ripe fruit (we used kiwi and strawberries), chopped
1-1/2 cups plain yogurt
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 paper cups (3 oz.) and popsicle sticks or plastic spoons
In a blender, combine all ingredients; mix well OR layer fruit flavors like we did, popping them into the freezer between layers. Pour into eight (3 oz.) paper cups; insert popsicle sticks or plastic spoon in center of each. Freeze 4 hours or until solidly frozen.
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup honey
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
( Food coloring, optional )
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; mix thoroughly until “dough” begins to come together. Do not over m ix. If desired, add a few drops of food coloring to dough and mix. Store dough in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.
