Badges of Fun: Winter Fun

The girls recently earned their seventh badge in Disney FamilyFun's Badges of Fun challenge!  The theme of this badge was Winter Fun.

Jaden, which I'm sure you've figured this out by now, has a heart of gold.  She is always concerned about others.  When winter arrived, Jaden was worried that the birds would not be able to find enough food under all the snow.  So, for our Winter Fun badge, we decided to help out our feathered friends!

First, we made bird seed cakes to hang on our shed.  

We used a really long string of yarn to connect all of the cakes.

Then, we made a couple of feeders to stick in the bushes in the front of our house.  To do this, we spread peanut butter on a toilet paper roll core and then rolled it in bird seed!

After letting our treats sit out in the cold garage overnight, we headed out into the snow to deliver them!

Our shed has an overhang where we store wood, sticks, and fallen limbs.  This has become a nice nest for a bunch of birds :o)  We hung our bird seed cake string across the shed.

The girls had a lot of fun with these projects.  The birds killed these treats in only a day or two!  Jaden and Taylor successfully earned badge seven!

Great job, girls!!
