Want to Teach Kids to Give Back to Nature at Home as a Family? Eve Bunting Has the Answer!

In the book "Night Tree" by Eve Bunting, a family goes into the forest and decorates a tree with edible items as a gift for wildlife. This book teaches us about the spirit of giving and nature. Try this activity at home! Instead of heading for the woods, simply decorate bushes or trees in your own yard. 

  • Spread peanut butter on pinecones, roll them in birdseed and hang them on a branch. 
  • String a variety of berries and wrap them around a tree. 
  • Place apple slices on branches.

Then sit back and watch your furry and feathered friends have a feast before your eyes.
