Day 5 - Fish and Birds

I read aloud Day 5's scripture verse:
Genesis 1:20-23 Then God said, "Let the waters swarm with fish and other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind." So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water, and every sort of bird-each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. Then God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply. Let the fish fill the seas, and let the birds multiply of the earth." And evening passed and morning came, marking the fifth day.

We put up our Day 5 clothespin picture, if you want to see the details on how I made it, go to Day 1.

Now the fun part...making bird feeders!  We went to the grocery store to find fruit and vegetables that we could clean out to fill with bird seed.  We bought a green pepper, orange, apple, pear, and a cantaloupe.

We had great teamwork todayI cleaned out the fruit, my husband put the holes in, and my little disciples snacked on each one:)
The green pepper and cantaloupe with twine tied to it.
The pear, orange, and apple with twine.

We filled each fruit with spoonfuls of bird seed.
Glad we did this outside, definitely messy.

We hung all of them on our front tree by our living room window.

My 2 year-old disciple decided to sing today's songHe is definitely getting the hang of this:)

Tune of ("Are You Sleeping Brother John")

God created. God created.
Birds and Fish. Birds and Fish.
That was on the fifth day. That was on the fifth day.
It was good. It was good.
