Friendly Children's Bee Programs

I'm not sure what all the buzz is about bees next week, but when I come across events that coincide with one another, I have to share them with you.  I'm going to try to interest my kids in these programs, but honestly I don't think it will go over well.  My two are afraid of flies and they don't sting.  But, knowledge is power, right?
