When there is some down time in our house and the kids are looking for something to do I try to find things that are educational for them as well as fun. Making our own bird feeding vines are always something they like to do. You can make these year round using all sorts of things. It’s inexpensive, easy for the kids to make, and fun to watch the birds pick at.
Today the kids were bored while I was at work so they popped some corn with grandma and used some raisins to make a few hangers. It’s only been a few hours and the birds have picked away at quite a bit. But that’s ok as the kids bagged up the left over popcorn and can make some more later.
