Advent Calendar Dec. 7

Today's activity was "Make a present for the birds"

We made bird seed ornaments to hang on the trees outside.  I got the recipe from this blog

Both kids took turns dumping in the first ingredients (flour, water, corn syrup, and gelatin) and then got busy stirring. 

After mixing that, they took turns again dumping the birdseed in.  Annaliese wasn't too happy when we had to take the spoon away from her so I could thoroughly mix it. 

The kids each chose a cookie cutter and then started scooping and filling.

And finally, Ian did the poking of holes for string.

 They have to dry overnight. I'll post pictures of the final product later.
