Making beeswax wraps

This bilingual (Welsh and English) educational resource is a great way of combining lessons around plastic waste and eco friendly alternatives with the importance of bees and protecting their environment. The pack contains teachers notes outlining how to use the resource and how to develop the project further, with links to additional resources and the national curriculum. There are also children’s task sheets with instructions for them to follow when making their own beeswax sandwich wrap.
You are provided with full instructions, fabric and wax blocks which are a blend of beeswax, pine resin and jojoba oil.
The children then have a wrap each to reduce their lunchtime waste or they can be sold at school fetes as a fund raising initiative.
