Its great being able to pass beekeeping down to the kids. My 6 year old loves it.
He took a beekeeping course at the local club, got his own suit for Christmas and I gave him his first hive this spring.
It seems the best time to start is when they are young and don't have any fear.
He cannot get enough information about bees and makes me explain every article that comes in the American Bee Journal each month.
He just gave a presentation to his class about beekeeping and the teacher was surprised about how much he actually knew.
That is a great picture of you guys walking to the bee yard together. :)
