Pine Cone Bird Feeders.
Today we finally sat down to do a craft we have been talking about for awhile. Pine Cone Bird Feeders. It is messy and so extra fun for the little people.
Supplies: pine cones, string or pipe cleaner, ribbon, organic peanut butter mixed with margarine or a little corn meal), bird seed.
Tie a twistie loop at the top of the pine cones. Mix the peanut butter with the margarine or some corn meal so it isn't too thick/sticky for the birds. Let the kids spoon or dip the pine cones in the peanut butter mix, spread, and then dip into bird seed. Loop the ribbon through the hole and hang on your tree. We are excited to see who will first discover our special treat.
We have one of these to make it even more fun:
