For the birds


The weather has been so nice lately, and the forecast predicts it only getting sunnier. So many daffodils are blooming in the front yard, and the blossoms are starting to pop up on the trees in the backyard. The birds are fluttering all over our backyard, and the birdseed bell we bought last year is completely gone. We all miss seeing them come so close to the window. We have had a hummingbird feeder on the grocery list for over a month, and we haven’t been anywhere to buy another birdseed bell. Today, the kids and I decided to work on a diy project and make our own bird feeders. We invited Ya Ya and baby Lyla over to join in on the crafting.

It was messy work, but big brother and sister measured all the ingredients themselves, and then stirred and mixed in the birdseed. The babies watched. After we had it all mixed together, we filled some fun molds the kids picked out, smashed it in tight, made holes with straws for hanging, and left them to dry overnight. Tomorrow, we will add the string and hang them in the yard and in front of the window. Hopefully we will get to enjoy the birds getting a snack soon. Though we are still technically in Winter, I think we are all officially enjoying this Spring weather!
