Hi, my name is miss pan, and I'm from children box child development center here in spitzer West Virginia and I have a book in a project Disney theater today. Our book is called best in snow. I don't know how it is where you live, but here, we haven't had a whole lot of snow this winter. We have a little bit, but in the winter, things change. The birds that we have all summer long, some of them decide oh it's too cold. At night aside, they want to fly south for the winter. They fly downwards a lot warmer. We have some other birds that decide, hey, you know, I'll call it this cold weather. So they fly up here and they stay with us during the winter 'cause they like the cold in the snow. So in this book, there's a lot of different animals that come out in the winter that we see mainly in the winter, some of them we see all year long. But some of them go through a little bit of changes and stuff in the winter. So we're going to read this book and see what we can find out. It is called best in snow. And there's some frost. A freeze. A breeze. A cloud. It's snow. It's the other little birds in there. Now, broken here. Snowflakes. Land on a squirrel's nose. And that squirrel he looks nice and real thick and furry doesn't he. His fur gets thicker in the winter, so it keeps him from getting too cold. Snow sails. And it settles. Snow shows shapes that are swings. Snow fall quickens, and thickens their snow clumps and clings. But then, when sift, snow, drifts, sun shines, that's my pretty, that's my favorite about snow in the winter, when this snow shines on that tree, it essentials on the snow on the trees. Water, seeps, crystals, feather, as ice creeps. Air warms, snow softens. It drip, drip, grips. Snow melt forms icicle tips. Down below. Say old mixes with snow. It's mushy. It's slushy. And two of a deer with them there. Look at the deer. She's all nice and inspiration is a nice warm fur coat on. Another freeze, another breeze, another cloud. And it stands. And another snoop's Lake lands. There's a blue Jay. Or a squirrel's nose. Again. So if you see a little squirrel here, he's digging in the snow. And in the fall, mister squirrel here, he goes doing togethers up all the acorns, and then he buries them, and then when it gets cold, he goes, and he digs them up. It's kind of like he's refrigerator. Keeps his acorns underneath the ground and it keeps them from getting all dried out and yucky. And you know, just go through and find these little acorns that he's all hidden in the snow. And sometimes if mister squirrel forgets one of his acorns that he's planted underneath the ground, it grows into a tree. So the squirrel helps us in the winter, and he forgets where it is acorns or buried. All right, so in the wonder when there's a lot of snow and it's very, very cold. Birds and squirrels have a hard time finding food sometimes, especially if we have a really long, cold winter. Squirrels and birds really need some help sometimes. They don't have enough food. So we have a building block so we go through quite a bit of bird seed in the fall and then are in the winter, where we feed all the little birds. We like to watch the birds and we live and see what colors they are. And we count the birds and we just see war are different about the birds in the winter and they are in the summer. Now, mister blue Jay that we had in here, mister blue Jay, we kind of call him the bully bird. He likes to fight all the other little birds out of the bird seed. The bird feeders. So, but he needs food too. So we have to let them Molly. And the squirrels. The kids like to gather the acorns up because we have a great big oak tree in our backyard at belly blocks and the kids love together those acorns up. And we put them in a plastic bag, and they're actually at my house in the freezer. That way they don't get yucky and they don't get worms in them and bugs and all that stuff. So when it's winter right now, I'll bring the acorns from my house out of my freezer, and we feed them back to the squirrels. They don't have to go looking for them all over the place. But this year we haven't had a whole lot of snow. He hasn't had to work too hard to find something to eat. But the little birds now, there's no more berries for the birds to eat. There's no more bugs outside for the birds to eat. So birds may need a little bit of help. So we're gonna make a bird feeder. So what I have here is something very simple. I have some peanut butter. And I have some bird seed. And I have a toilet paper tube. And I take the whole punch and hole punched, holes. Amateur paper tube. On both sides. That way, we're gonna be able to hang it up. Now, we'll move those because we don't want a little birdie in cardboard. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna take a plastic knife and if you don't have make sure you have an adult help you because even if it's a plastic knife, it still has little teeth on there and if you're not careful, you need to hurt yourself. So if you don't have a plastic knife, a butter knife, or even a craft stick popsicle stick. There's all work. You could even use a spoon if you wanted to. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna take the peanut butter here. And a plastic knife. And we're gonna spread the peanut butter on to the toilet paper roll. And squirrels really like this because they like the peanut butter off of it. So, and then one year, we made these, we made them with punk and you can take a pine cone and do the same thing. Take your pine cones. And cover it really good with peanut butter. More nice, good, thick coat of peanut butter 'cause that's gonna hold your seeds on. Your bird seed. So we've got our peanut butter on there, nice and thick. To hold our seeds, and I don't want to cover them all holes up because that's where the strings got to go. So we've got our little. Toilet paper tube all nice and covered. And then we'll set it on the plate. And now it has some bird seed. All right, we're going to take a little bit of our bird seed and we'll pour that on our plate. And then we got to kind of mush the peanut butter down and the bird sheet. You just got to kind of roll it and turn it. See it up a little bit more right there. Until we get it all nice and covered. And you can go back through and if you need to. Push it down in there. Or see just a little bit more. Now, if you put your peanut butter on there nice and thick, you can just kind of keep rolling it around. And the bird seed. And make it sure it's all nice and thick on there. Now, you have two little holes right there that we cooked in there with this egg. You can put your little string through there. You could put a pipe cleaner through there. And hang it up in your tree and your backyard or hanging on your porch. And see what kind of little birds come and check out your bird feeder. So there's all kinds of other things that you can make this out of. Remember, you can use a Pong cone. If you have some extra bird seed and mom's making biscuits or mom and make him bread, you can take a little bit of bread dough and do the same thing. Get your seeds all up there in the middle. Pour you some seeds out onto a plate and then mash your bread dough or your biscuit though or there's little can biscuits. Take one of those, and mash it down into the bird seed really, really good. And then have helped mom bake it in the oven and you mate a bird feeder. And it was just a biscuit and a little bit of bursty. You can help mom. You can help mom or mom or dad or grandma or grandpa who have assured adult. Remember all of our families are different. Okay? I have two moms, a dad, and 9 brothers and sisters. I'm a family's a lot different than a lot of peoples. Some people live with grandma and grandpa, some people. Some people live with friends. Just depends on how your family is made up. So you have your adult help you. And you can make it out of biscuit though. You can make it out of bread dough. You can just use the peanut butter and some stuff that's laying around your house. One year we made these at billing blocks, we did them on pot cones, and we hung them up in the trees. And we had deer that came in and was standing on their back legs. Eating the bunkers. They ain't the Bongo. They the whole thing. Punk cone and all. Can you believe that? I couldn't believe it. I just couldn't believe that the deer would eat Panko and peanut butter on it. I must like peanut butter. So you can make it out of just about anything. And I hope they're a little bird friends out right now. And another thing you can do to help our little bird friends out and I didn't bring any with me and I should have thought about it is that dryer fuzz that comes out of the jar when you take the clothes out. Birds love that to put in their nests to make them all nice and warm and cozy in the winter. So I take the dryer fuzz out of the dryer and I put it in the little holes at the top of the fence that building blocks and the little birds can come and get it and take it and put it in their nest. So there you're helping the birds and you can help the squirrels and you can help all the little Friends out there in the Woods. So all right, well, that's it for me. I hope you enjoyed your book and your project. And I hope you make some good eaters. And I'll see you later. Bye.
