This is a great activity to do with children, my two decided they wanted to make these after seeing them on an episode of Disneys Special Agent Oso!
You will Need
- Large Pine Cones – the more open the easier to fill
- Peanut Butter – smooth or with nuts
- Bird Seed
- Ribbon, Garden Twine or Wire Large bowl
How to make them
1 Tie the ribbon or wire to the top of the pine cone, create a loop
at the other end to attach to the tree
Cover the pine cone with peanut butter, making sure the
pine cone is fully coated.
Fill large bowl bird seed, place the pinecone into the bird seed
and roll to cover
Thats everything – all you need to do now is hang on a tree, bird table or anywhere else birds frequent.
These are so simple to make, get the children out and about collecting pine cones and hanging the feeders and children will love watching the birds tuck in!
