Feeding the Birds...

Yesterday Azalea and I thought that we'd like to feed the birds and make them a snack. At that moment, two memories collided. One was of THIS post from Ullabenulla about remembering our feathered friends and another was a project that either I did in elementary school (or heard about so many times that I've adopted it into my subconscious as something that I actually did).

First we picked out our apples. Then I cut the steel wire. We both bent our wires and embedded them in the apples so that they would hang and so that they'd be easier to handle. Then we covered the entire apples with peanut butter and then rolled the apples in bird seeds. They turned out pretty nice! Then we went out to hang them up. We were having a problem finding just the right branches to hang them from and it was getting cold out, so we decided to leave them on one of the bird feeders.

This was a fun and easy project! I'd like to do more of these types of activities with her while I'm here.

Isn't she a doll?
