Do the kids not like the bushes or the bees?
Interesting species of bees. I haven't seen such ones in Europe.
Funny how those two pics look like they're continuing each other with the peduncle
Those bees look like Carpenter bees which is somewhat good news for your kids. The males don't have a stinger and the females do but will not sting unless they have to , they are not aggressive but the bad news is they love to drill holes in wood. Nice Pictures!
