Earth Day came and went but we are still doing a few fun Earth Day activities. Today we made these easy DIY Bird Feeder Ornaments and the girls can’t wait to watch the birds in our backyard. There was something so special this week about sharing with the girls how we can help take care of our Earth. They were both so excited to make these for the birds, and I hope we can all catch a few birds eating from these cute bird feeder ornaments!
This recipe only takes a few ingredients and hopefully you have them at hand, but if not, make sure you add them to your next grocery list!
