Make your own Bird Feeders

Over Christmas we spent some time in snowy Lake Tahoe. Before the snow fell, we gathered up some large pine cones from the big trees in the back yard.  Later, we covered them in peanut butter, rolled them in bird seeds, and then tied a string to the top.  We hung them in the snow-covered trees for the birds to eat all winter long. It was an easy project, and I can imagine it would be fun to watch the birds come eat the seeds throughout the winter.

Courtney this is such a fun craft to do with my kids. Though keeping the peanut butter on the cones instead of eating the jar will be hard! When it gets really cold (and snowy) it’s fun to be kind to the birds. I’m going to share your post with my readers too. Take care!
