For the birds

Yesterday Natasha and I made bird feeders while Zoia napped.  I got the idea online at Unschool Preschool - if you have young kids, you need to add this brilliance to your bookmarks tab; she's a toddler-mothering genius. 

Anyway, the project is super-easy.  You just give the kid a pipe cleaner and some Cheerios and let them go nuts.  I don't know whether stringing cereal on a pipe cleaner is something all two-year-olds are capable of, but I have to admit I was pretty impressed with my daughter's skills.  Just look at that concentration!

Will the birds eat the Cheerios?  I'm guessing not. (Also, what birds?  I think they all flew south already - it's cold here!). But N liked the concept of the birds "nyum-nyuming" her creation and this was a fun activity for us to do together.
