Everyone wins with this open ended family activity. It hits all the right notes: everyone is involved, you go outdoors, you work together to care for something, there is loads to learn and share…
But, like every worthwhile thing, it is costly. It took planning, preparing, maybe dealing with a bit of resistance, and most likely caused a mess. Because you are a parent, you did it anyway.
You put out the seed & peanut butter pinecones or hung the popcorn garlands, now find a perch together to watch who comes for the Winter treats. This is an awesome way to handle this long, tricky season – good job parents. (Bonus points for identifying the visitors and/or taking their photo!)
