The Morinville and Area Nature Kids gathered at the Fish & Game Clubhouse on Sunday afternoon to make and decorate cookies and make a craft. The nature-themed cookie cutters included the bear, moose, fish, owl, bat, canoe, deer, tree and maple leaf to name but a few.

Once the cookies were completed the kids went on a short nature walk to collect berries, twigs and other items for their outdoor craft.

The craft involved filling the balloon encased container with water. and the items collected.
The ornament is then hung outside till it freezes. The balloon is then removed to reveal the frozen ornament.

As the ornament freezes the items fall to the ground and become food for the birds.
