If you’ve spent any time visiting me, you know I have a deep and abiding love of birds. . .♥
We keep our feeders filled year-round, but it’s especially important in the winter months, when there is snow on the ground and a great way to brighten a dreary winter day!
We had a run on seed last weekend during the snow. . .
And we have the fattest and most well fed squirrels in the neighborhood :)
I had a little snowy day tabletop fun last year feeding the birds. . .
The guests of honor at my table can be seen here:
Feeding the birds can be a fun snowy day activity and project to do with the kids!
Make your own Bird Seed Wreath Feeder using a Bundt pan, directions here.
You can use the same method to make bird seed treats using cookie cutters as molds. You can find the details, here.
And you can create a Gingerbread House Bird Feeder, using a ready-made kit and a combination of seed, crackers, nuts or dried fruit. Set it outside and wait for your feathered friends to enjoy their edible house and treat! Details, here.
Pine cones make an easy winter feeder for birds with a mixture of cornmeal, peanut butter and seed. Tie some twine around the pine cone before you coat it in your peanut butter/seed mixture for easy hanging on trees. . .or a rake :)
