crafting with grandma - Valentines Day Bird Feeder!

Valentine's Day is one month from today, so if you are looking for a simple craft which your grandchildren could do . . . and one which has a purpose, then look at this great idea I found on Pinterest for a Valentine's Day Bird Feeder!

You'll find the simple directions at this link . . . this is something I'm definitely going to make with Josiah and Caleb! This is a fun craft which children can actually make themselves! As we work on them, we will talk about how God shows His amazing love for us by creating such a beautiful world, filled with so many wonderful creatures! If you have a book with birds in it, get it out and look through it together; find a bird which is the most unusual, the prettiest, the ugliest and the most crazy looking! You could also do this on-line if you do not have a bird book!

Consider having your grandchildren make extra birdfeeders which they could share with their neighbors . . . they could also make a really fun item to give as their Valentines to their friends - have them make a zippy with a finished feeder and the supplies so their friends could make one of their own as well! How fun would that be???!!!

Enjoy!
