Kid’s Easy To Make Bird Feeder

By now you know how much we support wildlife and how many benefits there are for children to be outdoors. We love this easy-to-do bird feeder that helps your kids be creative and gives them more opportunities to get close to nature.

What you need:

  1. Pine cones
  2. Peanut butter
  3. Spoon
  4. Newspaper
  5. Birdseed
  6. String

What to do:

  1. Put down newspaper so you don’t get your table all full of peanut butter.
  2. Tie a string on the top of the pine cone.
  3. Take a spoon and spread peanut butter on the pine cone. (You can also use a butter knife if your child is old enough)
  4. Roll pine cone in the birdseed.
  5. Hang up pine cones in trees or near windows.

Keep a little notebook by the window to use as bird log. Whenever someone sees a bird eating out of the “feeder” they can record it and share their sightings with the family.
