A Simple Bird Feeder Craft For Kids
empty cardboard toilet paper tube
yarn or string for hanging
Begin by placing a generous amount of birdseed on a plate. This will make it easier to roll the tube when you are ready.
Take a knife and apply a smooth and generous layer of peanut butter to the cardboard tube. You want to make sure the whole outside of the tube is coated.
Roll the tube into the birdseed. Make sure you roll it well so all of the peanut butter is covered.
