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.
