Bird Feeder

Materials
  • Pine cone
  • String
  • Peanut butter
  • Knife for spreading
  • Bird seed

Directions

  1. Make your own bird feeder with peanut butter, a pine cone, and bird seed.
  2. Tie a string around the top of the pine cone under the ridges, so the string stays in place, and knot it, leaving enough string for hanging.
  3. Thoroughly cover the pine cone with peanut butter, then roll it in bird seed.
  4. Hang the feeder outside near a window and your child can watch the birds eat.
