Todays Advent Calender note said to feed the birds. A simple and time tested activity perfect for preschoolers. We used Crisco instead of peanut butter (Lu's allergies.) Lu had fun smearing on the"glue" with her own plastic knife. I put the seeds in a Dixie Cup and had her sprinkle them on to the pine cone and Crisco.
Even though she is not allergic to seeds I just wanted to be safe she didn't touch them since it was a blend and who knows if some nuts got mixed up in the blend.
We'll be watching for some bird friends to visit our treats.
Hope your making time for some quiet moments amidst all the chaos than can be the holiday season.
