In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
One nature partnerships is the honey bee and the flower. Families and the wider congregation may not be aware of the current honey bee crisis in the United States. The ice cream brand Haagen-Dazs has created an interactive website explaining the importance of honey bees as well as actions that can be taken to help. Choose activities that will work well for your group or congregation. Examples include:
During the event, have volunteers take photographs or video to share with the children at a later time. Close the event with these words, or your own:
As Unitarian Universalists, we believe it is important to take care of all of the living beings in the web of life because we are all connected to each other. What happens to the honey bees matters to us all.
Have the children lead the song, "We've Got the Whole World in Our Hands." Invite the participants to add verses such as "bees and the flowers in our hands" and corresponding motions.
Share photos or video of the event with the children in a subsequent session.
