Carry it out to the yard . . .
And hang it up! We're still watching for birds at it! He shows such pride in his pinecone bird feeder the birds have been munching on and shows a great connection to his new feeder. We keep watching them out the window.
Have you seen your children spend their own money on "nature"? I could make a lot of money off my kids on these:
We bought some digging kits on clearance last year and have been giving them to the boys little by little. They still ask for them as presents and this little three-year-old bought his own while we were up at Kalamazoo Nature Center. I think we need to learn how to make them ourselves next! While they are slightly messy (yes, white powder on the table for a couple of days if they aren't finished digging in one sitting), there is something about discovering, using tools, and being a scientist through these kits.
