crafting with grandma - Make a Winter Bird House & Some Weird Birds!

It is a cold and snowy day here in West Michigan - wind chills are in the negative degrees - my idea of chilly for sure!

So, what do you do on a cold and snowy day . . . especially if you happen to have your grandchildren/children at home with you? Consider making a bird house so birds can find shelter from the cold and snow, too!

Check this link from the Farmer's Almanac for making a Winter Bird House from supplies you may find in your home and on your work bench! Get ready to get creative with your grandchildren!

As you work on your Winter Bird House with your grandchildren, talk with them about the kinds of birds you might see in your backyard; get a bird book or look on-line to learn about these birds. You could also look at weird birds - check Reader's Digest for this link about eight of the World's Weirdest Birds, and my Life on the Goldilocks Planet book series for some very interesting birds at this link. While you are not likely to find any of these weird birds taking up residence in your bird house, talk with your grandchildren about how God created birds and spend time thanking Him for creating so many colorful, unique, and weird looking birds!

What bird do you think looks the most weird? I personally find the Shoebill Stork to be pretty weird looking!
