We have more than our fair share of pinecones in our yard, they seem to be never-ending! My kids have always enjoyed making pinecone bird feeders. I thought the kids would make one or two each but they ended up making a total of 10! They were having so much fun that they didn't want to stop! Not only did the kids have a blast, but they were so easy for them to make! I gave them each a spoon and they got busy.
Here's how to make a pinecone bird feeder:
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!

Have you ever made a pinecone bird feeder with your child?
My kids might finally be old enough to do this this year. Looking forward to a fun summer :)
My seven year old would ADORE THIS.
They are so adorable making those! FYI - for those with a peanut allergy, other nut butters work too!
I haven't had the chance to make one with my kids yet, but remember making them as a kid, myself. Fun and easy. :)
I have been meaning to do this with my son, I think he will love it!
Oh these are so cute! Carter would have so much fun making these with me...and we have so many birds! Oh so excited to see some birds come!
What a cute, fun, inexpensive idea! My kiddos would love making these!
