For The Birds

While trying to come up with what we would make today, I kept thinking of the birds.  I kept pushing the idea out of my head thinking that I needed to have a really great craft to teach the kids.  I even prayed about what to do.  well, the idea of making birdfeeders of some sort just wouldn’t go away so that’s what we did 🙂

We headed outside in our wonderful 70 degree weather to make birdfeeders.

we spread orange slices and pinecones with peanutbutter and birdseed

and hung them from several trees around the school


Then we headed inside and made origami doily birds.

here’s the instructions:

I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals.
