The BBC have launched Radio 2’s Big Bee Challenge, where this year, the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show is asking children, aged between 6 and 12 years old to design a garden that will attract bees and other pollinating insects.
To celebrate the launch of the competition, we've created these bee-rilliant activity cards in collaboration with BBC Radio 2 to help you get your garden buzzing!
