With kids and families all working and schooling from home at the moment, I am imagining that some folks are having a difficult time coming up with activities to keep their kiddos busy – especially with becoming instant teachers and all. I’m not sure how well I’d do if I were suddenly given a promotion from mom to teacher, so my hat’s off to all of you with younger kids; you’re all doing an amazing job!
Since yesterday was Earth Day and the Disney Parks Blog is sharing some fun content about nature, animals, and the world around us, I thought I’d share this neat project that might fit the bill for the fun department as well as a little bit of learning too.
As annoying as some insects might be, we all know that flies, beetles, bees, and butterflies all play important roles in the pollination of plants and flowers.
Today, one of the pollinator garden caregivers from the Disney’s Animal Sciences and Environment team, Disney Conservation Manager Dr. Zak Gezon, shared a pretty cool video that teaches us how to create an easy and inexpensive pollinator garden for our homes.
Take a look at the step-by-step instructions below for more details.
Our friends at the Walt Disney World Resort have created pollinator-friendly gardens all throughout the property, including an enormous one within their newest 270-acre solar power facility – which is celebrating its one-year anniversary this week.
