For our countdown activity today, we made a bird feeder by stringing dried and fresh fruit on thread. Boogs was very good with the sharp needle and only poked himself once. I had out dried fruit and Boogs decided that he wanted to do an experiment and see if the birds would like dried or fresh fruit best. After we put on the fruit, we hung our feeders outside in the backyard. We watched for birds for about 30 minutes. It was a nice and peaceful way to start the day. We did not have any birds visit the feeders. So we will have to check back later today.
