Spring Bird Feeder Challenge

15th March 2021

With Spring on the horizon it is such a great opportunity to get out and about with you little ones. Whether it be in your garden or a loved ones garden (when the restrictions allow) nothing beats some fresh air and making memories.

With the birds and wildlife coming alive with the warmer weather and the longer days we have got a wonderful and easy treat for you to make for our feathered friends, who are currently busy nest building. These easy bird feeders are perfect for little ones to make and they are easy and ecofriendly, not a piece of plastic in sight!

 

This activity can be done out in the garden to avoid the mess inside!

 

To take part in our bird feeder challenge you will need:

Toilet roll tubes

String or wool

Peanut butter

Bird Seed

A tray or shallow bucket

Something to spread the peanut butter with – a blunt knife or spoon.

Step 1

Sprinkle the seeds onto you tray or into your shallow bucket

Step 2

Using a spoon or a blunt knife spread peanut butter all over the outside of the cardboard tube. You’ll need good coverage so make sure you use lots of peanut butter!

Step 3

Roll the peanut butter covered toilet roll tube into the seeds. The best way to do this is to put a finger into each end of the tube and roll it back and forth. You can then use your fingers to sprinkle seeds onto any gaps.

Step 4

Cut a length of string or wool and thread to through the tube. Tie a generous loop.

Step 5

Explore your garden and find a branch to hang your bird feeder from. Be sure to watch out and see if the birds come and have a tasty snack!
