Bird Seed Pine Cone Craft - An Easy Kid Friendly CraftEach year when it gets cold and we notice that there are only a few birds left hanging around, we make them a few little treats.  When Cam was younger, he made these, and now it's Kate's turn.  She was home sick today, so we gathered up some things and made a little Bird Seed Pine Cone Craft.  They are super easy to make, and I think it made her feel a little better too!
