Spring Project: Bird Nesting Materials!

Although we still have snow in our yard and the lake is still frozen over, it's spring in MN and I thought it would be a good time for a spring-y project with the boys!  We put out tons of bird feeders in the spring and summer, and the boys love watching them eating through the windows.  So, this year I decided to make some little pouches filled with nesting materials for the birds.  I saw the idea on Pinterest or somewhere...

Anyway, I saved a couple mesh produce bags and then we collected soft things around the yard and house.  Here's what we used:
Milkweed pods, dryer lint, and yarn
I gave each of the boys a few 2'-3' pieces of yarn and had them cut them up into short pieces.  Great thing to keep their little hands busy with!
Each kid got a bag to fill.  I tied one end shut and turned it inside out to make a bag.
Bag ready to tie shut!
Hung and ready to line a nice, soft nest! Now to wait and see if we find any colorful nests this summer!
