Now that spring is officially here the kids are all about admiring the sweet little birds hopping around outside. They seem thrilled to be chasing and “trying to catch” them as they move around the yard. I’m not certain what they want to do with them once the catch them, but I am assuming they want to play with them as if they were little pets. Luckily the kids have gotten no were near one, so I haven’t had to worry about it yet. So, I decided that we needed a fun craft project so the kids could make their own bird nests and birds to play with. Here is a fun rainy day project to with the kids that allows them to create there very own little bird family to play with complete with a nest just right for playing.
Remember less than a month ago, when I shared with you the 30 Random Acts of Kindness that our family had done over the last year? Well, I ended that post with # 30 which read: ” Number 30 is a surprise and I will fill you in on it very soon! We are planning something big that is so near and dear to our hearts and I cannot wait to share it with you after it is all said and done! It involves a campaign that we started to help kids who have been faced with heart related illnesses.” Well… here it is friends- time to share! Our 30th RAOK is in its final stages and we couldn’t be more proud of what we are calling the Comfort For Kids Campaign.
As the snow finally turns to rain we welcome the chance to see and hear the sights and sounds of spring again! One of the most best signs that spring has arrived is the beautiful sound of busy little birds chirping outside your windows. Here is an easy projects for the kids and well… it’s for the birds too! Get the kids in on the fun, and let them help the birds celebrate spring. A few quick supplies and some old jar lids is all you will need to create some sweet little bird treats with your kids. Not only is this a fun activity and easy project to make – The thrill of watching, waiting, and seeing the birds that enjoy the treat they created will evoke some awesome smiles from your kiddos!
