I bought McKenzie this bird feeder over the summer when I was in NY. I brought it home and gave it to her. She loved it but we did not have time to paint it right then. We put it in the pantry and totally forget about it...until it was time to clean the pantry out! There it was, the bird feeder from this summer! So, McKenzie got to work painting it. She painted and painted and painted for almost 2 hours on her bird feeder. She had a blast doing it and now it looks so nice hanging in our backyard! She did such a great job!
