Earth Day Activity: Feeding the Birds

Making your own bird feeders is a bit messy but definitely entertaining.

We made a few kinds.

The first was mini-bagels and the second was made from pine cones.

Each was basically rolled (or smothered) in peanut butter (UNsalted), then rolled in bird seed.

Above you can see the third kind in action- it is a half gallon milk jug being cut out. The plan is to fill it with bird seed, then hang it from a tree by the handle.

The little guy got distracted by eating...

Here is the bagel version sitting in the nook of a branch.

And here is the pine cone version hung from another branch using thread.
