crafting with grandma - Valentine's Day Heart Craft for Birds!

This morning I browsed a bit on Pinterest and found a fun and simple idea for a Valentine's Day craft my grandsons could make. It is not just a "heart" craft, but a craft which they can use to help feed birds! Yes, I said, "feed birds"!

All you need are chenille wire and Cheerios. String cereal on your chenille wire, then twist the ends together to fasten. Bend into a heart shape. Take your next chenille wire and put through the first heart, add cereal, twist and bend to make another heart - this time you have the beginnings of a, "heart chain"! Add another heart or two and hang in a branch of a tree for birds to enjoy!

My grandsons will have fun making these . . . and, if they make several, they could sell some to family, friends and neighbors to raise money for bunnies! (See yesterday's post for info about buying bunnies to help families in need around the world.)

What do you think? Is this a craft you might use with your grandchildren?
