Here's a quick little project for little or big hands. My kids love to do this and it's super simple. The only downfall is that the cleanup can take longer than the project.
We gathered these pinecones from my grandma's yard last year. Kids love pinecones, mine are always bringing me special ones.
Spread the pinecones with a generous amount of peanut butter. I think little spatulas might be easier for the little hands, but we used butter knives.
Once the pincones are mostly covered with the peanut butter roll them in birdseed. Press down to pack the seeds into the peanut butter.
Tie a string of some sort around the pinecone. We used twine, but you could also use fishing line, floss, or even ribbon.
Hang the feeders outside and wait for birdies. The weather's so nice right now they're not very interested, but, as one of my friends pointed out, April is the new December here lately, so I'm sure we'll have some takers soon.
