Make Your Own: Fruit & Cereal Bird Feeder

Attract birds to your garden by making them a fantastic feast! A great way to use up leftover scraps and help the birds during the colder months.


What you need:

    • Pipe cleaner or garden wire
    • Cheerios
    • Raisins or chopped-up fruit bars
    • Apple
    • Cheese/dairy-free cheese

What to do:

Step 1: Put a knot into one end of your pipe cleaner/wire, approx 5cm from the end.

Step 2: Thread through some of your Cheerios, pushing them all the way to the knot.

Step 3: Thread through your raisins. If using chopped-up fruit bars, ask an adult to help you make a small hole in the centre with a pointed knife.

Step 4: Chop your cheese into cubes. With the help of an adult, make a hole in the centre with a pointed knife. Thread the cubes on.

Step 5: Now chop up your apple into chunks. Use a knife to make a central hole again. Thread a chunk on to your wire.

Step 6: Keep threading on a mixture of fruit, cheese and cereal. Leave about 5cm of wire clear at the end.

Step 7: Twist the two ends together to form a circle. No glue needed!

Step 8: Hang your feeder in a tree or bush, then sit back and watch the birds dine!
