We will be building small clay habitats with moss and hay/straw etc for the bumblebees.

Bumblebee House Experiment in a 6" Peanut Tin .. Thick Cardboard cut out with an entrance hole for the front.. small holes punched on the back side for air .. and a soil bedding inside.  Placed on the ground in a fairly shaded spot .. it's a good idea to cover the exposed tin so as not to heat up from direct sun contact.
