● pinecones (if not available in your neck of the woods, try any household item that can withstand weather like a wooden spoon)
● peanut butter (crisco is a great alternative for those with allergies)
● bird seed
● child-friendly knife
Tie yarn around the top of each pinecone, leaving a long tail to hang. Pour birdseed into a shallow container. Using the knife, slather peanut butter all over the pinecone. Roll in the tray containing birdseed.
If transporting, place pinecone birdfeeders in plastic bags since some of the birdseed may flake off.
