Feed The Birds: A Quick Craft for Kids

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!

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!

  1. Mercedes, that sounds like it was a really fun project with your children. I am glad that you all got to spend that time together. Hugs, Ardee-ann

  2. Amazing blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are
    so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..

    Any recommendations? Bless you!
