This fun and simple activity will create a delicious treat to help attract birds to your garden! You can even venture out on a pine cone adventure hunt to collect your resources!

    What you need:

    • String
    • Peanut butter
    • Birdseed
    • Knife (with adult supervision)

    Step 1:

    Cut your string to the size needed and tie this around the top of your pine cone. Make sure it’s secured nice and tight.


    Step 2:

    Here’s where it gets fun and messy! With adult supervision, use a knife to spread the peanut butter ALL over your pine cone. You want it completely covered! Make sure you really get into those nooks and crannies! Sticky!


    Step 3:

    Tip some of your bird seed on to a plate or bowl. Roll your peanut-buttery pine cone around in the seeds, letting them stick to it. This may take a few rolls! Pat down the seeds with your fingertips to make sure they’re properly stuck on.


    Step 4:

    Hang out your bird feeder! Don’t forget to regularly check on it to see whether any local feathery friends are popping by for a snack!
