Drawing Themselves and Making Suet

Just a few pictures of their projects one day last week...
I just love what their ideas are sometimes.
It really saves me a lot of work as I usually don't have to think of things for them to do!

Drawing eachother's shapes on a roll of butcher paper

She colored and decorated hers elaborately and cut it out. We hung it on her closet door in her room.

We save bacon grease in jars in the cabinet. Eventually one of them notices that there are a couple full jars up there and it's time to make suet!

We research what certain birds like to eat. Then we mix melted bacon grease with birdseed, dried fruit, coconut, nuts, etc.  The kids like to choose what to mix up.

Then we freeze it in pans, slice in squares, and store in the freezer separated by pieces of wax paper.

We have enough squares to last us a few months I think. We have 4 suet feeders outside.

Looks good enough to eat, don't you think? :)

My little labeler. :)
