The kids have been doing a unit study on birds. They built this bird feeder a few days ago, and hung it in our plum tree out front.
The kids also made a "goody" basket for the birds, by finding little bits of yarn and string, hair from a hairbrush, and bits of material. The birds will love to come and visit our tree for a snack, and some tidbits to help them build their nests.
All the kids felt like they did something important that day. The beauty of nature is something we simply can't take for granted. That is something I hope I am able to instill in my children.
