New World Little Gardens

Activities

Bee colouring in fun

Bees are busy little insects and work hard to make sure all our favourite foods don't disappear. That's why the New Zealand Bumblebee Conservation Trust are committed to helping keep them around forever.  You can find out more about how important bees are here and then download, print out and colour in our sheet here.
