Winter Tree Coloring Page

Winter Trees by George Szirtes

Aren’t you cold and won’t you freeze,

With branches bare, you winter trees?

You’ve thrown away your summer shift,

Your autumn gold has come adrift.

Dearie me, you winter trees,

What strange behaviour, if you please!

In summer you could wear much less,

But come the winter – you undress!

 

Our Winter Tree Coloring Page is based on our Winter Tree Applique...Read more

Frozen Fruit Ring Feeders

This is an easy and fun project to do with the kids. In our Winter Wonderland unit we encourage feeding the birds and include several different bird feeder crafts in the activities. This Frozen Fruit Ring Feeder, can add a festive flair to your bird feeder area or just add some lovely color to your backyard in the middle of the winter.

Materials:

  • Bundt pan, or jello ring mold
  • Colorful fruit
  • Bird Seed
  • Thick String or ribbon

For this project we used some strawberries and cherries that were starting to turn bad. This is normally fruit that we would add to our compost bin.

Partially fill the bottom of your pan with cold water. Add some fruit (you can leave the stems and leaves on for more color) and a handful or two of bird seed.

Place outside until it starts to freeze. Hint... although you can freeze the ring in your freezer, if it is not cold enough outside to freeze your ring then this project won't really work since you need it to stay frozen after you hang it up outside.

Can't See the Trees For the Forest

We've all heard the expression "You can't see the forest for the trees" meaning someone gets so bogged down with the details that they fail to see the big picture. I'm just the opposite, I get so immersed in the big picture that I often lose sight of the detail. Because of that, I can often be non-observant... VERY non-observant.

Once Tim bought me a park bench for my birthday and as a surprise he set it up in the living room. I was getting ready for work, went through the room several times that morning and never saw the bench. To be fair, I was thinking about work and not about living room decor! Could happen to anyone, right? Anyway, worse still, when I got home from work, I actually sat in the room TWICE before I finally noticed the bench. We are talking about a WHOLE PARK BENCH! This was early in our relationship, and thank goodness Tim continued to love me in spite of this personality quirk! 

My family is use to this behavior and often uses it for their own amusement. There is a game they play called HOW...Read more
