Make Pine Cone Bird Feeders

You will need:

  • One pine cone per child
  • One paintbrush per child
  • One plate per child
  • Peanut butter in a bowl
  • Birdseed in a bowl
  • Scissors
  • String/wool

 

STEP 1

  • Cut a piece of string/wool about 20cms long.
  • Tie this around the pinecone near the top.

 

STEP 2

  • Children place their pine cone onto their paper plate and spread peanut butter on it. Make sure the peanut butter gets into every nook and cranny.

 

STEP 3

  • Roll the nut butter-covered pinecones in the seeds until the entire surface of the pinecone is completely covered. Push seeds into the folds of the pinecone.

 

STEP 4

  • Choose a place where you have seen birds visit before.
  • Hang the bird feeder from a tree or a hook.
