Making Pine Cone Bird Feeders

We finally got around to making our pine cone bird feeders. The kids had a lot of fun with this. Becca and her kids came over. Oh and they brought the COOLEST thing! A dead lizard! The coolest thing about it was that it had been dead a good while so it was mostly a skeleton. Oh my goodness the kids were absolutely fascinated by it! I wish I'd had a magnifying glass so that they could really examine it. Then we worked on our science notebooks. The kids made their amphibian pages last week so this week we worked on our bird pages. We are learning about animal classifications and habitats, since the two kinda go together and overlap. We checked out some pretty neat books from the library. After we did our science notebooks we made the bird feeders. They were just pine cones smeared with peanut butter and rolled in bird seed. Super easy! Then the kids hung their feeders in our pear tree.
