I wanted a few activities for the kids to do besides watching Godzilla: The Original Animated Series, so we made bird feeders this evening.
Cute. Sweet. Best of all? They were very, very easy.
We took some small pine cones, birdseed, peanut butter, and yarn.
Tiny Daughter spread peanut butter on the pine cones. I managed to pull her hair back so it didn’t fall in the peanut butter (too much). Points for Mom!
Then you roll the pine cones in the seed, and tie yarn around it. Voila!
And hang them outside. Easy peasy, lemon squeasy.
Really, it only took us about twenty minutes from start to finish. But the kiddos were so excited, and it didn’t overwhelm me.
Enjoy, my friends!
