DIY Spring Bird Feeder

With so many people spending spring at home, this is a great activity for our feathered friends!  Make a super simple bird feeder with things you already have at home.  This project is great for rainy days, days home from school, or just a simple family activity.

Use a plate and scoop peanut butter.  Roll the pine cone in the peanut butter.  Then on a separate plate mix the seeds.  Roll the pinecone in the seeds.  Tie the string to the top of the pinecone.  Then take the new pinecone treat outside and hang from a tree branch!
