Crafty, for Nature

Earlier today we went to a local 'O.K. Kids Day' hosted by the Great Plains Nature Center here in Wichita. It featured a lot of cool crafts and information on the local wildlife. Illusia got to help in the making of simple wood bird house (which we plan to decorate and post the finished results later!) 

We made a great bird treat with a pine cone and some vegetable shortening covered in birdseed. We got a free pouch of wildflower seed and a wonderful little Burr Oak Tree sapling to plant. Lastly, Illusia got to practice her artistic skills on a pair of toilet paper roll binoculars! She got to see a lot of other kiddies and seemed to have a great time being crafty, for nature!

Here are some pictures of the event:
