My mom grew up in a house of 10 people. They were a very creative family, often turning simple house-hold items into games and crafts. My grandma showed me how to make these when I was a girl. So creative, so simple.
We always had fun at her old four-square house in Columbus, Ohio. We’d visit the Ohio State Fair, wander OSU campus (even meeting the football players one year!), eat copious amounts of pizza, play poker, dig around for buried treasure in the back yard, and eat toad’n’holes. No matter how long our visit was, it was never long enough. It’s always hard to leave Grandma’s house. And her presence his definitely still missed.
Maggie and I got to work making these little bird feeders this morning. We saved up our toilet paper rolls, got a jar of peanut butter, a bag of birdseed, some twine, and got to work. First tie a length of twine through the paper roll, then spread peanut butter over all of it, roll in birdseed, and you’re done! Find a good spot to hang it, and wait for the birds to enjoy their little snack.
Maggie would have loved her Great-Grandma.
