Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

With the weather so cold lately, I’ve been trying to find activities that keep boys busy and not bored while we’re staying inside more.

So! We decided to try and make treats for birds. You can see our first attempt at treats over at GNMParents (now ForeverParenting), in my weekly post. That worked well, but we needed to do more! Keep busy! Very important!!! Do you think I can use exclamation marks again in this paragraph??!!??? Why yes! I can!!!

Okay. I’m done.

The Mercenary toasted some slices of bread, then we spread peanut butter on them and smooshed birdseed on the side. (That’s the technical term: smooshed). We cut each slice in half, added yarn for hanging and set them back into the oven to dry. By the next day, we had nice crisp peanut buttery bird seedy treats to hang in the tree. Go us! Oh whoops. Exclamation point. I’ll quit now.

Here’s how our project came out. What do you think?
