A Snowman for our Backyard Friends

Last week, we finally had good snowman-making snow. Stephen and Aurora rolled snowballs through the yard, encouraging them to get larger and larger, until they were the desired sizes for a head and a body. The completed snowman parts were stacked one on top of the other. The kids decided to take a page out snowman and squirrelof the book Stranger in the Woods and decorate the snowman with food to feed our backyard friends. Birdseed, apples, cereal, and carrots were used to make eyes, hair, a nose, and buttons. Then some extra was sprinkled around just because the kids knew it wouldn’t go to waste. We saw a lot of activity around the snowman. Many turkeys, birds and squirrels feasted on the treats of our snowman. Let us know the kinds of backyard friends you have in your area.snowman and turkeys
