Timberwolf Trail - Week 22 - 2015-16 Edition

A steady and annoying sprinkling of sleet kept us inside for the start of our forest day. Also, with an anticipated snowstorm fizzling away the night before, the snowshoe-themed activities were altered. Luckily, kindergarten is always about flexibility. Rather than get chilled to the bone, we decided to have a Bird Feeder Bonanza.

We went hog wild and built a variety of bird feeders.

  • Toilet paper rolls with peanut butter and sunflower seeds
  • Popsicle sticks with pipe cleaners and cheerios
  • pine cones with peanut butter and seeds and cheerios
  • pretzel garlands
  • sticks hot glued together in geometric shapes (We didn't get to adding food, but we'll get there.)

Once we had a nice collection of feeders ready, we hit the trail, found a special spot for all of our feeders and set out for some natural play.

In our woods walk, a few discoverers found a nice pile of deer scat. Of course, this attracted much attention and a few grimaces (though I may have asked them to put on their grossest face).

With a potential for snow this upcoming weekend, maybe some snowshoeing will be in our future.
