Bird Feeders! Easy pre-school activity.

Quick and easy crafts are best in our house! This was a big hit with the boys and hopefully will prove a continued interest as the birds come to visit our garden and come for a feed. 

We basically took pinecones, tied the tops in string, smothered them in peanut butter, then rolled them in birdseed!

Gathering the ingredients was fun too as it involved a hunt for pinecones in the park, and a trip to the pet shop to see the bunnies!

They were made in about 10 minutes (about the attention span for crafts for my boys!) and then we went out to hang them on the branches.

With a little luck we shall soon have some feathered visitors - I'll keep you posted!

Your comments make my day! Do let me know what you think!
