How is honey made?

Honey is made by very special bees – honeybees! These bees fly to flowers and drink their nectar, storing it in a special pouch where it becomes sugar. The bees fly back to the hive with the sugar in their pouches, spit it into a honeycomb cell, and cover  it with wax. Then the warmth of the hive turns it into honey!
