today, as i sat and blogged about how to troubleshoot your sewing machine, a bird caught my eye outside on our fence, i watched as she tried to grab a string that was attached to the gardening trellis. i felt so bad as she tried over and over to grab it and take off, poor girl..
that prompted me to create this little saucer of bird nesting materials, a few different colored yarns, because i thought it would be cute to think of a birds nest having a ‘pop’ of color, tiny strips of warm and natural batting, and a little pet bedding.
this would be a fun activity to do with your kids, be sure to cut up the nesting materials into short 2″-3″ pieces, that way birds won’t get any materials caught around their legs.
you can even, go all natural, take your kids on a ‘nature hunt’ and gather small twigs, dry grass, straw, moss and leave it for the birds to discover in your yard.
place materials that might blow away into a small basket, or fill suet cages or mesh bags, and hang them on a branch.
