A Wildlife Tree

Today for Preschool in the Woods, the kids decorated a little pine tree with the ornaments we made a few weeks ago. This activity was an idea from one of the parents based on a book called Night Tree.

Materials included popcorn, cranberries, dried orange slices, bay leaves, fresh walnuts in the shell, and collected pine cones the kids smeared with vegetable shortening and rolled in birdseed. The kids did all the hanging, and of course spent plenty of time hanging out in the tree as well.
