Bird Feeder

Today was a fun creative day after lunch. Ryan received a great Boys Devotional Bible from cousins for his birthday and we have been enjoying going through it. There is a story to read based on scripture and then it is usually followed by an activity, a verse to memorize, a song to sing..etc. Over the Christmas break we had read about God creating the earth and filling it with animals. The activity for that day was to make a bird feeder out of a pinecone, peanut butter and bird seed. It just so happened that we collected 3 bags of pinecones on our trip to Tahoe in late Oct, and they were sitting in the bags still waiting for us to use them ! So today after re-reading the story and the reason why we were helping to take care of God's creatures, we created our bird feeders. Ryan & Matthew had a great time spreading peanut butter over the pinecones and then pouring as much bird seed as possible all over the kitchen counter! It was fun to be spending time together, teaching them about God's creatures and having some laughs all at the same time.

Here they are spreading the peanut butter.

Holding their bird feeders before I hang them in the tree.
