Perhaps this week will see a few more participants. As a friend pointed out, even one more would be a 100% improvement!
Last week the challenge was to feed someone. Someone other than the starving child(ren) and/or spouse you feed each day! Last week I packed a bag for the food bank. My son shared a cookie with a classmate at school. My daughter helped me make crackers, than offered them to her friend.
We also fed the birds. It's something we did at Nanny's house over Christmas. I have photos from then!
It's a really simple activity for you and the kids. Simple cut egg cups from a carton (or as we did last week use those biodegradable cups for starting seedlings in). Cut a small hole in the bottom - soon to be the top - and thread in a ribbon or string. Coat the cup in peanut butter and roll in bird seeds to make a yummy christmas bell treat for our feathered friends.
Then concentrate really, really, hard while you hang them on a backyard tree.
Nanny tells us the birds really enjoyed these Christmas treats. The couple we made here are all gone too!
Nanny and Grandad's backyard is a wooded hill. So there's lots and lots of feathered friends. According to my son there's also bears, tigers, moose, and coyotes in "dem woods."
According to my daughter - and me! - there's fairies in the woods. So with the cold winter weather coming in we had to build them houses. We put berries in there to feed them too!
