Top 5 for Under 5’s
FREE kids activities on the Mornington Peninsula
The Mornington Peninsula is just an hours drive from Melbourne city and hosts a range of amazing activities for all age groups. From mazes and wineries to strawberry picking and swimming it has something for everyone.
I have asked some of my favourite Mornington Peninsula Mums to share their favourite FREE activity for those under 5.
Pure Peninsula Honey.
School holidays make a great time to learn and explore outside of a classroom. Pure Peninsula Honey host educational Farm talks over the month of January.
Emma hosted the morning and had all the kids and adults engaged with a variety of hands on learning and spoken information. Pepper was able to help demonstrate how bees collect nectar.
Emma taught us all about what happens in a beehive and the different types of bees.
We were all fascinated about the queen bee and that she lives for 4 years! While the worker bees and drones only live for a few weeks. The queen bee also lays an egg every 40 seconds!
If you have seen Bee Movie then you’ll recognise this smoker! Emma explained to us that its used to calm the bees while the workers take the honey.
We discovered all the different types of honey available and even got to taste them. Woody loved Banksia as it reminded him of Kinder! Cooper enjoyed the Manuka and Pepper loved Clover. Emma encouraged the kids to ask questions and responded to them age appropriately.
In addition to the Farm Talk you can come and visit the Honey Shop 7 days a week 9-5pm. Inside you can taste the honey varieties and try your luck at finding the Queen Bee in the hive!
