When the sun comes out, we come out!
Staying at home to slow the spread of COVID-19 is easier to do when the weather is nice. Spending time in the fresh air is much more enjoyable for my family than being indoors.
Today, we took a break from distance learning to do a hands-on activity outside.
It is so simple! We made our own bird feeders, and you can too with just a few items.
Most of us stocked up on extra toilet paper, and other supplies, to lessen our trips to the store during the pandemic. Save some of those empty rolls for this craft.
My three sons took three toilet paper rolls, a plate full of peanut butter, a plate of bird seed and some twine outside and crafted a snack for the birds. And, for the squirrels.
Spread the peanut butter all around the roll, then generously spoon bird seed on the peanut butter.
You can even roll it in the seed if you wish. And that is it. We then hung them up and waited.
My boys loved that the squirrels found the snack first. Some birds eventually joined in, as well.
Is there anything better than watching nature while getting in a natural dose of Vitamin D? We also made a special memory during an unprecedented time in life, which is a reason to smile brightly.
