In honor of Arbor Day coming up on Friday we learned all about Trees!  I started the day off by reading the first portion of, "The Giving Tree" where the boy is still little and loves the tree.  He makes a crown to be King of the Forest, so we headed out to our Ash tree in the front to do the same.
 Twisting our crowns...

 Wearing our crowns...
 We made paint out of powdered milk, a small amount of water, and food coloring.  The leaves for our family trees were made with hand prints.

 We also started learning about AAB patterns.  It's much trickier than a standard AB pattern, but for their first day they did wonderful!
 "R" making his own pattern...
 We also made bird feeders out of pine cones, peanut butter, and bird seed.
 Most kids chose to hang them at my house, so our Ash Tree out front is decorated with a few new feeders, which the birds love by the way.
