Keeping kids busy during the long winter months can be a little tricky. When we are cooped up inside for too long, things can become a bit chaotic to say the least. We get restless, bored and just overwhelmed with cabin fever. Coming up with different activities to keep kids busy can be a challenge.
This easy peanut butter bird feeder is an inexpensive way to make some memories with your kids while enticing a few beautiful birds to come for a visit. Plus, you’re making some pretty great memories with some pretty great people.
Be sure not to throw those toilet paper rolls away! You could even cut paper towel rolls in half, cover them in peanut butter, roll them in bird seed and hang. Everyone in the family will enjoy looking out of the window to watch the birds eat. Heck, you could even turn it into a learning experience. GASP! The horror….
- Smooth Peanut Butter
- Empty paper towel tubes/toilet paper roll tubes
1. Spread a thick coat of peanut butter over the outside of the paper tubes.
2. Place tube in birdseed and roll all around until the peanut butter is coated.
3. Thread twine through one opening of the paper tube. Bring both ends of the twine together and tie a knot.
8. Hang outside for the birds to enjoy!
