For advent this year we rotate between activities, crafts, and little presents. Here is one crafts I came up with that actually turned out really cute.
First I cute Christmas shapes out of cardboard. Then we tied strings on to the tops of them.Next we smeared peanut butter and birdseeds over both sides of the shapes.
Here they are in their finished state. Some of the shapes worked better then others.
Then we hung them outdoors. The birds loved them. We had a titmouse, downy woodpecker, and blackcapped chickadee visit.
