We had to look for gems that Claire had hidden around the Allotment today. It was hard to find them all and took us ages.
Claire taught us that birds during the winter are trying to do the same as we were, searching for bits of food to keep alive.
We hollowed out some oranges and mixed seed with vegetable fat and stuffed it in the orange skins. Then we threaded some honey Cheerios on string. We made these bird feeders to hang in the trees to give the birds something to eat.
We went for a walk, listened to the birds and tried to identify them. Then we collected leaves and made Christmas Robin decorations with wood circles.
