Mother's going GREEN Day 25 - Children's Eco-Craft

Today we had a wonderfully warm day and the birds were out singing in the trees which inspired today's craft.

Pine Cone Bird Feeders

  • You will need:
    Large pine cone (open – which means it has opened up and released it seeds – see picture to right)
  • Peanut Butter
  • Bird Seed
  • Wire or String

Instructions (with an adults help if required):

  • Spread Peanut butter over the pine cone and in between the crevices
  • Cover with birdseed (we just stuck the whole cone in a dish of birdseed and it sticks to the peanut butter)
  • Tie the wire or string onto the base of the pine cone
  • Hang is a suitable spot (we hung ours off our back deck)
  • Watch as the birds visit and enjoy a tasty treat.
