Anyone who knows Mimi knows my love for all animals. This is something our daughter is instilling in her kids as well. I truly believe children who are taught to love and care for animals carry that on into how they act with their friends.
This simple craft is fun to make and you get to reap the benefits of it for quite some time as well. It requires only 2 items: pipe cleaners and cheerios. What is even better is that there is not a lot of help needed from adults. Kids can feel very proud of what they make “all by themselves!” The benefits to wildlife is an added bonus as well.
