something a bit different
It you have small children and want to try something a bit different at you next outdoor outing to entertain them, try putting together a birdseed "sandbox".
Pour the birdseed in the kiddie pool then put the toys on top. For a larger pool, you would need more birdseed.
When you are done you with it you can put the seeds in a large bag or tub and use it in a birdfeeder.
