For the Birds :: Simple Popsicle Stick Bird Feeders

by | Jul 19, 2018 | Birds, Crafts, Nature Study, Science | 7 comments

One day last month, after spending all morning watching the first flights of all the house finch fledglings from their nest on our front porch, we spent the afternoon learning about birds and crafting bird feeders using a bird themed box from AniMail

After hanging them in a couple trees out front, it didn’t take the birds long to find the new feeders! 
“Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.” – Henry Van Dyke

    I can't get any of the Ani-Mail links to work. Is the company no longer around?

    I, too, am interested in the Ani-Mail kits. These look like fun, and simple for this fellow homeschooling mom of 8. God bless, Melisa

    I'm not sure. I will send Ani-Mail an email and find out. My kids really enjoyed the box!

    Yes! Really was fun and simple. I've not been able to manage much this past year but was able to pull this off and it was so nice to have everything ready to go and in one place! I sent AniMail an email to see if they are still available. There were a number of different themes.

    Melisa, I am sorry for the confusion. I have been working on the site. It is up and running again! Thanks for your interest. There are a few different boxes (I'm hoping to add more soon). I would recommend the birds or insects for some summer fun 😉 We are also doing a summer discount on shipping! Thanks for your patience! ~Megan @AniMail

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
