Spring Crafts for Kids
A bird feeder you can make at home
by Joanne Roehm | October 10, 2011
Children will enjoy getting a little messy while making these bird feeders almost as much as they’ll enjoy watching the birds come and nibble from them once they’re hung outside.
Mini Bird Feeders (0-2 Year Olds)
Birdseed, peanut butter (or honey in case of allergies), silicone ice cube molds, ribbon
Step 1: Mix birdseed and peanut butter (or honey) until texture of play-doh.
Step 2: Spoon enough of the birdseed mixture into the mold to cover the bottom
Step 3: Place the end of a piece of ribbon in the center of each mold
Step 4: Cover completely with birdseed mixture
Step 5: Freeze overnight
Step 6: Pop bird feeders out of molds and hang outside (preferably on a cooler day – if it’s too hot out, the peanut butter may melt!)
