Before Christmas and the whole right eye problems, My mom and I painted and glittered pine cones. She ended up having quite a few left over. We took a bag of pine cones home with us and decided to cover them with peanut butter and bird seed and feed our bird friends during this super cold and snowy winter.
1) Get some peanut butter
2) Spread peanut butter on
3) Roll in the bird food mix
And Voila! Bird Food Pine Cones
Only thing is-the birds had no interest in them at all. Sunday, after breakfast, we went out to play in the snow and noticed only one pince cone and been eaten and by a squirrel. He was still trying to get little bits off the pine cone and so we went and grabbed the other pine cones from the back and put them at the bottom of the tree for him and i hung one up close to him. He never ran away the whole time!! The pine cone i hung up kept him busy and while he was nibbling on that other squirrels came and grabbed up the pine cones from the ground but they came when we were in the back. We happened to see one running in the street with a pine cone in his mouth and one diving under a car when we came back to the front. Happy Happy Squirrels and Little Man got a kick out of it as well.
And after some Hot Cocoa and Lunch, my guys went in Daddy’s workshop to do some forging.
Little Man wasn’t down there long but he liked getting to do something daddy does.
