Holiday Treats for the Birds!

Carolina chickadees enjoy these treats.

Here's a project kids and adults can enjoy together.

Materials:

  • Large pinecones
  • Colorful ribbon cut in one-foot lengths
  • Peanut butter and a knife for spreading
  • A baking sheet
  • Sunflower hearts or a good mixed seed

Tightly tie the ribbon to the stem end of each pinecone. Pour the bird seed onto the baking sheet. Spread peanut butter on the pinecones, jamming it into nooks and crannies. Roll the pinecone in the birdseed. Hang on tree branches, holiday garland, or along deck rails. Birds will devour it.
