Kindness Project: Bird Feeders

Our first week of kindness dove into bird feeders.

All of our story time books have an underlying theme of kindness. This week we read:

One Love (based on the song by Bob Marley), adapted by Cedella Marley

Little Bird, by Germano Zullo

Hunter and his Dog, by Brian Wildsmith

The Lion & the Mouse, by Jerry Pinkney

Because Amelia Smiled, by David Ezra Stein

Miles of Smiles, by Karen Kaufman Orloff

Hank Finds an Egg, by Rebecca Dudley

After stories, we made our bird feeders!

The best thing about this craft was that we got to munch while we worked! The kids made bird feeders out of Cheerios and pipe cleaners. We chatted about the best places to hang them at home (away from windows, high off the ground), and some kids even hung them on the trees around the library!

Thanks for helping out some hungry birds! Next week, we're making postcards!
