This week is abuzz with free options for fun that don't require boots or winter coat battles. From honeybees to soup there's something for everyone in this edition of MacKID picks. Check out this sweet lineup of can't-miss events happening January 31 - February 6:

1. What's the Buzzzz About Bees?

When it comes to bees, it's time to save them, please. These powerhouse pollinators are key to many of our fave foods, not to mention the honey. That's why we're tuning into this virtual event and getting the buzz about simple things families can do to protect these un-bee-lievable insects. Feb. 1

2. Meet Detroit Hives Beekeepers in this Black History Month Event

What does Black History Month have to do with beekeeping? Dial in and find out at this virtual workshop straight from the Smithsonian African American History and Culture Museum. Learn about bees, beekeeping, and the increasing diversity and importance of this sweet hobby. Feb. 2

3. Sing Along at a Little Folks Show

Hitting the club for live music is tougher with kids in tow. Bring them the joy of concerts from your living room with an hour of stories, songs, and fun live from Caffe Lena. Feel free to bust some moves, it's a no judgment zone. Feb. 3

5. Follow Along with Stories, Songs and Rhymes

Storytime at the New York Public Library? That sounds way more fun than another rendition of that raggedy favorite from your bookshelf. Tune in and let the pros serve up some stories that'll wow your literati. Close your eyes and pretend you're in the Big Apple, instead of the big pile of laundry. Feb. 5
