I thought it would be fun for Joshua to make a bird feeder. All you need is a pinecone, peanut butter, bird seed and a piece of string. He had a lot of fun making it although he kept getting side tracked like usual-- making designs with the peanut butter, eating the peanut and playing imaginative games with the pinecone and seeds-- so it took us forever to finish up the task. We hung it up in one of our trees and have had fun watching the birds eat it. We're going to try to do this each year.
