By the end of the book he has decorated a tree in the park for the other birds and everyone who stops by the park to see.
How did we explore Merry Christmas, Merry Crow?
Ornaments for Birds
He enjoyed filling the oranges up with birdseed after I have attached colored twine to the oranges. At first he keep the oranges in the black tray to keep to birdseed from going everywhere. After I short time, he decided to hold the oranges and do a forwards scoop into them.
The forward scoop idea actually did a great job of keeping the seeds from spilling out. It looked cool too.
After stirring the birdseed and suet together, we molded the mixture into holiday shapes by putting it into cookie cutters. JDaniel used a spatula to push in as much as we could into each cookie cutter.
Once each ornament had been formed, we put it on an oiled foil covered cookie sheet to dry out. A small piece of a straw was pushed into each ornaments to make a place to put a ribbon through later.
