This is great practise for their fine motor skills. You can also count the pieces of cereal which Puppy loved. She also arranged them into different shapes

Once you have enough pieces of cereal on the pipe cleaners you can make them into shapes to hang outside.
Puppy thought hers looked like superworm (Juila Donaldson book) so we used hers to attach the other t20130228-160811.jpg

    I love this idea! Now that the birds are finally coming back into our yard for spring I’ve been thinking about making some bird feeders for them. My 5 and 3 year olds will really enjoy this! Thanks for sharing!
