These are little homemade bird feeders which are now hanging on my front porch. You take a slice of bread, cut it with a cookie cutter, leaving the bread inside. Pour melted peanut butter, then sprinkle nuts, seeds, rice, raisins, whatever you have. This was so fun, and now we get to hopefully enjoy watching our hungry visitors eat!
We also made a little nativity scene out of toilet paper tubes (we have plenty of those around!). I saw this in a magazine but I couldn't remember exactly how it was done so we made up our own version of it. Don't Mary and Joseph look happy staring down at their little peanut wrapped in swaddling cloths? If you look closely you'll see Mary is shedding a hot glue gun tear.
