Birdwatching/Art Station

I thought the birdwatching station was a great idea. I still plan to keep it, and hope to expand it to include a hummingbird feeder and possibly attract something other than sparrows, but it turned out that all people really wanted was coloring pages. Since I started it in May 2014, only about 5 kids have written in the log. 
So, I revamped it! We still have a birdwatching station, with log. But I also extended it to add an art station.
I made the birdwatching station just the display shelf, log, and signage. I brought a table over to be the art station, put up a sign, and printed a variety of coloring sheets, both "story starter" kind of things and actual coloring sheets, mostly animals. Hopefully people will not just pick up the whole stack and walk away...
