In this post, Becky from Baby Budgeting shares this great idea for making bird feeders Perfect for little hands to get involved with, and great for bringing wildlife to your garden.
To make a pine cone bird feeder you just attach a pine cone to a piece of string and dip it into melted vegetable suet before rolling in wild birdseed. If your child does not have a nut allergy this alternative may be easier for them to be involved in – using a palette knife, you could apply a coating of peanut butter to the pine cone, again before rolling in wild birdseed or peanuts.
Great fun for the kids to do. You could set up a little production line and make quite a few! The pine cones can then be hung out ready for the birds.
