Spring is pretending to arrive around here. Our family of three is slowly becoming comfortable with being a family of four. I’m still home with Monkey and Bear for a little bit longer.
Monkey is loving it. She still goes to daycare once a week, spends time with Granna, but mostly she wants to be home with me.
So, what to do with this rainy day?
Monkey had picked up some pinecones on a walk we took the other night. Pinecone Bird Feeders!
What you need:
Paint brushes (we used foam)
Cut a piece of string and tie it around the base of each pinecone. Make it secure or the squirrels will run off with them!
“Paint” the nut butter onto the pinecones. Find a willing toddler to assist with this (and yes, the nut butter will be eaten…).
Place the pinecone into a bowl with bird seed and pour more over the top to coat, again toddler assistance recommended (yes, bird seed will go everywhere).
Admire your work and then hang outside (once the rain has stopped).
