We may live in the Dairy State, but this weekend your children will have the chance to learn about another critter - the Honey Bee.
On Saturday, at Hotel Mead in Wisconsin Rapids, the Wisconsin Honey Producers Association is sponsoring "Kids and Bees Expo."
It's from 2 pm to 4 pm and free to the public.
Experienced bee keepers will be on hand to explain and answer questions about the bee keeping industry and the magical world of the hard working honey bee. Kids will also be able to roll their own beeswax candle, taste different types of honey, and see an active hive.
On Friday on Sunrise 7, The American Honey Queen, Teresa Bryson, joined us in our studios and shared some great honey recipes. You can find them listed below:
