BUNNY TAILS AND BIRD SEED

Here's a bird friendly alternative to the children's classic Easter egg hunt.  In lieu of candy, fill the eggs with bird seed, pure cotton balls (bunny tails) and excelsior or natural raffia.  Have the children create little nests, fill them up, then place them about the yard as an offering to our feathered friends.  The birds will eat the seeds and use the rest to build nests.  Kids will enjoy constructing the nests and strategically tucking them about in trees and shrubs.
