Colorful Bird Nests

A colorful spring project that your kids will love... and so will the birds! www.TheRefurbishedHome.com

Spring is such a lovely time of year. Especially here in Michigan, after months of looking at brown trees, grey skies and muddy snow, we finally start seeing a bit of color again. This has been a really strange spring though. In the last 4 days alone, we have had beautiful warm sunny weather and green grass, followed by 6 inches of snow the next day, the third day brought more warmth and melted all of the snow, then the 4th day we got more snow. It’s driving me nuts. I am ready for bright beautiful color.

Mildly witty is my favorite type of humor, so in spite of my 6-year old’s tendency to take most things very literally, I fully embrace this tradition every year.

As we get closer and closer to the holiday season, it is easy to get caught up in the rush of things rather than stop to remember what holidays are really about. In much the same way, children can get caught up in thinking about what they want rather than what they have to be grateful for. My son is 5 years old and I really think it is important to instill in him a strong focus on the blessings in our lives.
