Pollinator Party: a celebration of bees

Last Thursday we went to the Pollinator Party put on by the U of M, just east of the rose garden at Lake Harriet. It was such a fun event! There was honey sunflower ice cream, beehive demos, games, crafts and activities for kids. Here are some pictures from the event: 

We made this tissue flower at the Art Institute booth.

We are in the belly of the beast. this moving polar bear was in the art car parade a couple days later, but goes to different events throughout the summer. 

It moves by people pedaling together. You can pull different levers to move the mouth, the head and the tail.
