doodlebugs 5.7.10, fantastic birdies

sequins, feathers, markers, and imaginations were all a-flutter this morning, as we decorated paperboard (old cereal & pizza boxes) birdies. we've been bird crazy around here these days: watching & identifying birds at the feeder and in the yard, drawing birds galore, and making this little favorite animal of sam's the theme of his birthday.

we had this book from the library, and it seemed like the perfect partner for a doodlebugs bird extravaganza. this one kept the kids (the small, chubby-cheeked ones and the taller, hairy-armed ones) quite engaged for a while, even continuing to play with them and fly them around afterward. when we got home, the boys stuck crackers in the trees for their birds to eat (those crackers disappeared so fast with a little help from the artists!).

  1. Your birds are lovely, and it is a great time of year to watch all the birds flocking to the feeding table.
