The Perfect Recipe For A Bird Feeder

Kids bouncing off the walls? Keep them busy with this easy craft. All you need is a box of Cheerios and some basic craft supplies.

What you’ll need

  • Sharpened pencil
  • Sugar ice cream cone
  • Pipe cleaner (chenille stem)
  • Table knife
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Cheerios cereal
  • Birdseed

What to do

  • Use the pencil to poke a hole in the pointed end of the ice cream cone.
  • Twist a knot in the end of the pipe cleaner. Thread the pipe cleaner into the ice cream cone and out the hole (the knot will hold the pipe cleaner in place).
  • Use the table knife to spread the peanut butter on the outside of the cone.
  • Press the cereal all over the peanut butter to cover the cone.
  • Sprinkle the birdseed over the cone, pressing it into the peanut butter with your fingers.
