Making a Bird Feeder or Naughty Squirrels

On Sunday afternoon Ell, O, and I made bird feeders out of pinecones, peanut butter, and bird seed. We had fun finding pinecones in our neighbor's yard (our pinecones were too small), spreading the peanut butter on the pinecone, and sprinkling the bird seed the pinecone. I planned on making 3 or 4, but Ell and O lost interest after one. We hung it in the tree, and we excitedly checked on it this afternoon. It was gone! There were a few scraps of rope under the tree, but that was it. Naughty squirrels!

  1. We made these at the winter solstice and the squirrels stole them right away. Now we have about 6 or so ribbons hanging from the tree. I suppose at least something was fed! Oh and we did see one of the squirrels running across the yard with one in his mouth! Too funny!
