Perhaps one of the girls' favorite things to do it cut with scissors. They will seriously make confetti out of a sheet of paper in 3 minutes. Their toy room looks New Years Day every day. A couple of skeins of yarn and scissors and they were happy as clams. We filled a suet bird feeder with yarn pieces for the birds to build their nests. We hung it from a bush and it has seemed to attract birds from all over the city! We have 3 nests in our backyard and 1 that we found on the ground. Hope we get some babies to peek at this summer!
