Veronika adores birds right now, whether the tweets she hears on our walks or spotting them out the window. So as a follow-up to a few easy bird feeders we recently made, we thought about birds in a few other ways today.
First up: just listening to their sounds! I put a CD of bird song on Spotify as we sat down together to…
…read a bird book! She has a great board book about birds, and right now we have to sit and go through it at least twice a day.
We repeated a favorite bird feeder (pine cones rolled in peanut butter and sunflower seeds), and also made a string of unsalted circle pretzels on yarn. She loved hanging this one from our tree.
Now when the birds come, we stop to watch through the window!
A final fun idea is to leave a few pieces of yarn on your back patio. Birds use them this time of year for nests.
Maybe we’ll even spot a colorful strand on a future walk around the neighborhood.
