Today we did a little project. We took several pine cones, rolled them in peanut butter and added bird seed for the neighborhood critters. We hung about 6, with fishing wire, throughout our backyard and waited patiently.
While I was making dinner I noticed a squirrel tugging at one next to the birdhouse we have in the yard. I called for Jeremiah to come a take a look. We watched this squirrel struggle for several minutes until he finally broke the fishing wire and ran off with the entire pine cone. Jeremiah thought it was fantastic.
Above is a picture of one of the floating pine cones.
