DIY – Pine Cone Bird Feeder

This is an oldy but a goody!


I needed a project for my busy Toddler. I had just recently collected some pine cones from my dads house, because you never know when you will need pine cones ;) I remembered a project from when I was a kid. The bird feeder made from a pine cone. The only thing I needed to buy was the bird seed at $3.00. Tis the season to be thinking of gift giving. This is a great gift for your child to make and give to their grandparents or neighbors. 

Supplies:
Pine cones
Peanut Butter
String (I only had dental floss)
Bird seed
Tray
Cups
Spoons or Butter Knife

For making it a gift:
Cellophane bag
Ribbon
Gift Tag


1. Scoop some peanut butter in a cup for dipping.
2. Tie a string around the pine cone (the only string I had in my house was dental floss!)
3. Give your kid the pine cone and the peanut butter and let the mess begin!


4. Pour a cup with bird seed over the peanut butter. The tray will contain most of the bird seed, to keep reusing.


5. Tie it to a tree branch. My son was watching it all day to see if the birds were snacking. Sadly the birds were too quick for my camera.

Voila!


Clean up: Hose your kid down, because the peanut butter was every where.
