I could hear a loud buzzing nervously I looked at Mum and she took my hand and led the way.
We reached the hive and Mum gently blew on the bees 6 times. They moved aside showing me their beautiful honeycomb. The honey comb was made up of many 6 sided cells all filled with golden honey. She cut a small piece and explained that bees make lots of honey, but we should only take a little at a time so that they have enough to feed the babies.
The bees slowly moved back over the combs and it was time to leave the bees to build more perfectly shaped cells.

- A hexagon
- 6 fingers
- 6 flowers
That’s the way to make six, you know!
