Helping the birds

Yesterday we decided to help the birds in our yard by providing them with nesting material as they busily work to build their nests.

I gathered up our supplies: leftover felt from some craft projects, cotton balls, ribbon, dryer lint, shredded newspaper and twine.

I used two of our suet holders that I had cleaned out and let the boys fill them!

Once they were filled we headed outside to find a place to hang them!

We are going to keep an eye on them and see if we can spot any of our birds making use of these materials!
