Now a little trick I've used for years, that makes it easier for toddlers to to do the stickers books on their own, without the frustration of stickers that tear etc as they try and get them out. Is to peel the sticker background of, leaving behind the stickers they need. They are then able to peel them of without any of the usual problems.
Now tying in nicely with the end of the story was the idea I had seen here, so we made some pop corn, some for snack and the others to thread onto string. Not something I will plan to do again in a hurry as it's rather fiddly and time consuming, even if did look rather good. We made some bird feeders using an orange cut in half and the flesh scooped out and attempted to make some feeders using bird seeds mixed in with melted lard and pressed into cookie cutters. I only managed to get two out in one piece, the others crumbled. Any way L and the minders, loved putting them on the tree, not sure when the birds will feel brave enough to come into our garden to feed though, as the children ran around the garden shouting " Birds, birds, we've made food for you, birds come and eat your food now"
