Not long til Christmas now! We are nearly done with all our homemade gifts, but we didn't want the birds to feel left out! So, the afternoon project with the kids today was bird seed ornaments. It's a super simple project so it's great for the little ones. And also, I thought it was really fun. I'm pretty easy to entertain!
If they're too little they'll need some help with the first step.
Cut whatever shapes you want to make out of cardboard.
We made some shapes (like candy canes) that we can just hang, but the shapes like stars you will need to punch a hole in top for string to hang up.
Cover the shapes with a layer of peanut butter.
See Farm Girl in the Background? With peanut butter on her sleeve?
Then just press the birdseed down onto the peanut butter.
And there you go!
We didn't go out and hang ours up today because it's still a little cold, but it looks like we might hit 40 degrees tomorrow (heat wave!) so it should be a good day for getting some fresh air!
I did get out for a short walk this morning though.
Here's what it looks like around here today.
I want to grow some things to use for bird feed next year (that bag of birdseed was pricey!) . We are planning sunflowers for sure. do you have any other ideas of what we could grow for bird feed?
