Homemade Star Bird Feeder ~ Easy Kids Craft
My granddaughter Katie and I love making things together. I found this great idea in the Family Fun magazine. We love feeding the birds and with spring on the way I thought we could make this cute little bird feeder.
Cardboard (I used an old box because it’s a little thicker)
I found a template for a star here.
First cut out your star using your pattern on the cardboard.
Poke a hole in the top for your twine/string.
Coat the cardboard star with peanut butter on both sides. Katie’s favorite part of course.
Using a cookie sheet, pour bird seed onto the cookie sheet so you can coat the peanut butter with seeds. Use the pencil to hold on to the star.
Thread the twine/string through the hole so you can hang it up for the birds.
Katie was so excited to hang it outside. I hung it on a shepherds hook outside my kitchen window so we can watch the birds eat 🙂 brrr… it’s cold outside!
