Normally a day or 2 after our walk we decide on a craft and start creating. Today was such a good day that I decided we would create something after the baby went to bed but before his bedtime. We have had a birdhouse out back that my husband and son made a few months ago (but you can get a similar, already made one at Wal-Mart in the craft section) and we never got around to painting it.
We decided to make it a birdhouse creation that the birds will fight over!
We had sticks and pine needles galore and a hot glue gun (upon suggestion from my friend at The Happier Homemaker who said I need to always have glue in stock!).
My son broke the sticks into manageable pieces, and unfortunately learned a little lesson on termites while he was at it!
We glued sticks up the sides and glued pine needles on the roof.
We glued more sticks on the front and my son picked buttons to add to it and told me where to put them to 'invite' the birds to the house! He also kept reassuring the birds who were talking outside that they would have their house soon.
