winter bird feeder craft for kids

 

DIY Bird Feeder

Winter is headed our way in just a few short months and for many animals that means storing food for winter. Some animals don’t hibernate or stock up on food before the weather turns cold and snow covers the ground. Birds that don’t fly south for the winter will build their nests or find a hollow tree to keep them shielded from the elements during the winter months. You can help them out by making a bird feeder that hangs from a tree branch in your yard with just a few supplies that you can find around the house.

Supplies

Pour cereal on a flat surface or plate and roll the peanut butter paper rolls in the cereal. The cereal will stick to the peanut butter.

Cut strings into lengths of about 15 inches. Thread the string through the opening in the paper roll and tie the ends together to create a loop. Hang your DIY bird feeder from a branch in your yard. You can even hang several feeders around your yard so there is plenty of food for all the birds this winter!
