Later we made Pine Cone Bird Feeders at the Little Humbugs picnic table and stools, located in our secret wooded hollow.

Learning about American Robins as we made the pine cone bird feeders. Part of the Little Humbugs “Let’s Go Outside” video series is to encourage children to “touch, feel and be involved” with nature.

What better way to do this than let the children hunt for pine cones, get messy with sunbutter and bird seed, then experience the pleasure of watching birds arrive to feast on their delicious pinecone
feeders.

Snack time

We picnicked on fruits that were in season, peaches and plums that I picked fresh from my garden earlier that morning. One of the mothers (Kristina) kindly made Butterfly Cup Cakes.

A party wouldn’t be complete without a party hat. We made mini nature crowns for their Butterfly Girl dolls.
