To celebrate Spring Equinox we made Orange Bird Feeders to welcome home the birds and in particular a very large Robin Mama. I had printed this orange idea out last year and it was the perfect -- go to -- since I had all the materials we needed and because I hadn't much time to prepare anything else to celebrate this special day.
It also tied nicely in with Vivian's new book The Sun Egg. A new favorite of mine. The little ones really like Elf and I could tell that they were a bit surprised of the story line. A lot of snickering went on and their curiosity was generously feed by both the storyline and illustrations. A keeper for sure.
Take a peek at us creating our orange bird feeders.
Of course we had to dress up for the occasion.
Squeezing and tasting the fresh orange juice - simply divine.
I really loved making these this bird feeders, and so did the little ones. A perfect rainy day activity packed with Vitamin C! The process of making these spoke to all our senses and wow! - so delightful - sweet and sticky and delicious. I found that making these bird feeders was a beautiful way to express our love for all of the gifts Mother Nature is about to unfold on us. I encourage you to make one, you'll be glad you did.
