O, M, Guh-guh, and I made cheerios and pipe cleaner bird feeders this morning. To make the bird feeders you need pipe cleaners and cheerios :) Thread the cheerios onto the pipe cleaners and you're done! Simple and fun! It's also a great activity for strengthening fine motor control. O and I made these feeders last year, too, but she was much more involved this year. She was excited to make her feeder in the shape of an O (of course!).
Guh-guh climbed up in the tree to hang our creations with the other bird feeders.
That's a really cute bird house. :) We made this bird feed too.ReplyDelete

A new reader stumbling upon your blog from Crafty Crow. Hello! :o)ReplyDelete
This activity looks nice, I might try it with my son. I'm just wondering - when do you think it is too late to feed birds?
Hi. I'm coming out of "lurking" to tell you that your blog is so inspiring! I love reading it. You have given me so many great ideas. I have a three year old daughter. I made felt Valentine cooks last month. They did not turn out as beautiful as yours, but my daughter loves them and I had fun making them. Thank you for sharing :)ReplyDelete
What a cute idea! How do the birds like it so far?ReplyDelete
May- That's a good question, and my mom and I were just talking about that yesterday. I guess it depends on where you live, but around here we usually take our feeders down at the end of March :)ReplyDelete
Great idea! Arin loves stringing things so this looks like something she'd love to do.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the great idea! I'm having a launch party for my picture book, 1 zany zoo, (which won the Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories contest) and was looking for a craft for the kids. This is it :-)
Lori- We have your book and LOVE it! We love the books that come in the Cheerios boxes!ReplyDelete
