Our new hummingbird feeder!
So...it looks like some of the activities in the book are geared more towards pre-schoolers and elementary age children, but I skimmed some of her springtime ideas and came up with this little combination of my own: hanging a hummingbird feeder together and "hunting" for flowers! I think the triplets will be even more impressed when they actually see birdies at the trough, but they sure liked "hunting" for flowers (Gracie even ripped off a few leaves and buds, and Ollie got a thorn in his finger from the rosebush - oops), and then they trotted off and spent a little time sliding and a little time in the sandbox!
Time outdoors: 55 min
Something gained: Audrey said the word "flower bud" after seeing one on the cherry blossom tree!
