Join Toni and Des for a wacky fun-filled adventure! Each week we'll be taking a deep dive into a new topic. Together, let's learn, discuss, and make something cool! 

This program is for children aged 6-10.

For the month of August we will be posting weekly challenges. Complete them at your own pace and in any order. After you are done, email the library to let us know which challenge you have completed. Please give your name and phone number.

We would love to see your finished projects so send us pictures if you would like!

Each completed challenge will give you another ballot for our Summer Reading Game draw.

Please email the library at staff@canmorelibrary.ab.ca

Check the drop downs for each week's topic. We will post resources to use during and after the program.

August 10 - Challenge 1 - Bee Nice!

Though their stingers might be scary, you shouldn't bee (get it?) afraid of bees! Honeybees, bumblebees, and the other types of bees you might find in your backyard are super important to the ecosystem. Bees are pollinators. As they fly from flower to flower collecting nectar for their hives, they spread pollen to different plants. This pollen helps plants grow! Without bees to spread pollen, many plants would not grow.

Do you want to help the bees do their job? Like all animals, they need food, water, and shelter to survive.

This week, we challenge you to build a bee hotel.

Bee hotels give bees a place to rest on their journey from garden to garden. Some types of bees are solitary - they live alone - so a hotel gives them a nice place to make their home.

Ready to get started? Try following one of these tutorials to make your own bee hotel!
