We made bird seed ornaments the first week of Advent (Creation) to help feed God's birds. They turned out pretty cute, and the birds left no seed behind. We made them using this recipe: http://www.saltwater-kids.com/2010/12/thrifty-gifts-bird-seed-ornaments-for.html and packaged them using the file folder box tutorial: http://www.saltwater-kids.com/2010/12/file-folder-gift-boxes.html. Ella took them as gifts to her teachers and friends.
|I love the red boxes used in the tutorial, but we had a box of natural colored on hand.|
|Ella delivering her first ornament to our neighbor, Cambrey|
|A sweet hug|
|And of course a butterfly ornament to Chas.|
|Her boyfriend(s), Harrison and Townsend...|
And more deliveries followed before she hung her own ornaments on trees out back
|And our first of God's creatures (Hawk) was waiting in the wings...|
We will definitely do this again!
