Answer to Pioneer Puzzle #12 7-26-15
The children took the top part of the box and put a flower in it. When a bee landed on the flower, they quickly closed the box and took it to their mother.
The mother put a little bit of flour in the bottom section of the box, then put the top box on it. She pulled the sliding door open, and the bee fell into the flour, which coated its wings.
They took the box outside and opened it to let the bee fly out. With wings coated with flour, the bee flew lower and slower than usual. The mother and children were able to follow it to its hive in a tree and get some of the honey.
