diy five-minute bird feeder

March 12, 2012

There are some activities that are almost too easy to be considered active. And there is no question this is one of them. Just to have something fun for Little Bit and I to do one afternoon, I threw together the necessary equipment and called him over. And within five minutes, we were watching chickadees pick our new project clean. If that isn’t instant gratification, I don’t know what is.

For each feeder, you’ll need a toilet paper tube, peanut butter and a nice handful of birdseed.

To assemble, spread the peanut butter over the toilet paper tube, and then roll in the birdseed, pressing it down to make sure it sticks.

Slide onto an obliging branch, pull out your binoculars and watch the birds come in.

Happy Monday!
