Feed The Birds! How To Make A Pine Cone Bird Feeder With The Children This Summer School Holiday

Posted by Jennifer | August 11, 2021

Here is a simple and easy-to-make pine cone bird feeder, a fun craft idea for the summer school holidays to do with children of all ages.

Choose a spot for the birds that can be easily reached, whilst perched on a branch and that can also be visibly viewed from the inside of the

house. The children can then watch their feathered friends come to visit in their back garden or backyard for a snack.

Here’s What You Will Need:

Large open pine cones 

Peanut butter     

Twine or string       

Birdseed                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

How To Make A Pine Cone Bird Feeder:

1. Cut a piece of twine or string 10 inches long and tie it to the top of the pine cone. Tie a slip knot and then tighten it around the top of the

pine cone, then tie the ends of the twine or the string together to make a loop to hang the pine cone from. Make sure to attach the twine or

string to the pine cone before you add the peanut butter and birdseed otherwise could be messy.     

2. Place a scoop of peanut butter onto a paper plate or paper towel , by making your pine cones on a paper plate or paper towel will keep the

mess down.   

3. Carefully spread the peanut butter onto the pine cone, making sure you put a little on each of the pine cone scales. The more peanut butter

you add, the more birdseed will stick to the pine cone and the longer the bird feeder will feed the birds. 

4. The pine cone is now ready to dip into the birdseed, dip and roll all the sides of the pine cone until all the peanut butter is completely

covered in birdseed.     

5. Now the pine cone is ready to hang in a place somewhere in the garden or backyard where the birds can easily feed.
