Birdfeeder Fun

When the memory of these little birdfeeders as a child popped back into my brain, I knew that my littles would love to make some too.  It's an easy & cheap craft with lots of fun.  While Dutch loved making these, he really loved sitting on the window seat in his room watching the birds & squirrels outside eat off the feeder. So let's go and make some :-)Birdfeeder Craft- Life with the HawleysHawley HomeschoolThis is so simple, and most likely you have everything that you need at your fingertips, or a quick trip to the grocery store. Bird seed, peanut butter, used paper towel roll or toilet paper roll (or even a pinecone), twigs from the yard, a hole punch, and some string. See....easy!DSC_0131Before getting started, punch two holes in the bottom of the paper towel/toilet paper roll for the twigs to go through for the birds to land on & 2 at the top for the string to go through so that you can hang it on a tree branch.  Then let your little one apply some peanut butter to the cardboard or pine cone.  I put the bird seed on a paper plate and let Dutch just roll the buttered cardboard through the seed.DSC_0144DSC_0149After rolling the paper towel roll in the bird seed, push the string through the top to use as a hanger, and push the twigs through the bottom, and hang on a nearby branch so you can watch the birds :-)DSC_0159DSC_0156DSC_0152
Have fun with your little one!
