Happy Holidays

Every year the museum has put on Santa train. This year we were give the opportunity to decorate a tree, so the animal department got some stuff together and decided to give it a try.


We found various stuffed animals , an owl tree topper, some pre-made ornaments and some that the keepers painted themselves. The garland that hangs on the tree is made from the twine that is from our hay bales. We made popcorn and craisin rope so the birds and squirrels could get a snack. We also made peanut butter pine cones dipped in bird seed.

An afterthought we added to the tree were snake skins which arent in the picture.

    The snake skins have been a real crowd pleaser with the human animals and the popcorn has been very popular with the squirrels. Awesome tree animal department!
