Christmas for the Birds

Posted by: Rhonda December 8, 2015

Transform a tree in your yard into a holiday buffet! This centuries-old tradition of providing edible ornaments for birds is a perfect activity to bring nature right to your window.

Some classic items for the holiday feast are chains of popcorn, dried bagels, cranberries, orange slices, and peanuts. Choose a tree within good viewing distance from your window so your kids can watch and identify the feathered guests as they enjoy the treats.

Our three-year-old class had fun turning pine cones into hors d'oeuvres. Watch how to make them here.
