Clorox Clean-Up 'Recipes for Fun' Sweepstakes + How to Make Pinecone Bird Feeders

Do your children like to bake pizzas with smiley faces?  Cut their fruits into decorative shapes?  Maybe they like to paint with their fingers or foods instead of the traditional paint brush.  I've always been a mom who lets my children learn and explore freely, recipes for fun are perfect no matter what the time of day, season or weather!

In addition to baking fun foods, my children love arts and crafts.  Making pinecone bird feeders is the perfect frugal spring and summer activity!  

Have you ever made these as a child or with your children before? 

Here's how: 

Take a pinecone and cover it with peanut butter, then roll it in bird seed. Tie a string around the top of the pinecone and hang it. Simple, easy, done!  

"Clorox® Clean-Up® Cleaner has launched an exciting Web site where you can find and share recipes for fun activities to do with your kids. At, you and your kids can get ideas for science experiments, cooking recipes and arts and crafts projects.
