"Feeding the Birds"

As a homeschool project we decided to make Ice ornamaents for our willow tree...filled with bunches of yummy stuff for the birds and critters the kids love watching. We just filled our shallow tuberware containers and muffin tins with water, added bits and pieces of food, and thick twine to hang with. Then I set them outside and let them freeze! I saw this done once with acrons, and wintery items found outside but I thought a lesson on how to feed God's creation in winter would be neat. (and a good way to clean out my produce that was almost going bad :)!) They loved it and can't wait to hang them up on the tree out front tomorrow.
