Bird feeder

We have been making these bird feeders for as long as I can remember.

They are easy for little children to make and they are a lovely gift for the birds in this freezing weather.

We hang them from a tree in the back garden and we have a little family of robins that really appreciate them.

What we use

Pine cone

Peanut butter

Raisins

Seeds/granola

    What we do

Lay out the ingredients on separate plates.

Wrap a pipe cleaner around the top of the cone to use as a hanger.

Spread the peanut butter all around the cone using the back of a spoon.

Roll the pine cone around in the raisins and then in the seeds.

Now you are ready to hang your bird feeder and do a spot of bird watching.
