Hanging Bird Treats

By:

Do you need homemade crafts for kids? Check out this hanging bird treats project by Amanda Formaro. It's a great project for a group or one-on-one, and it's one of our easiest bird seed projects.

Hanging Bird Treats

Materials:

  • 1 slice of sandwich bread for each hanger
  • Cookie cutter or paring knife
  • Yarn or other strong piece of string or cord
  • Peanut butter or vegetable shortening
  • Wild bird seed

Instructions:

  1. Use a cookie cutter to create shapes from slices of sandwich bread. We did stars and circles for our treats.
     
  2. Let bread sit on the counter until dried out, a couple of hours should do the trick.
     
  3. Line a plate with bird seed.
     
  4. Use a toothpick or wooden skewer to poke a hole through the bread for the string. Be sure that you leave enough room above the hole so that it doesn't tear.
     
  5. Thread string through the hole and gently tie in a knot.
     
  6. Spread both sides of bread shape with peanut butter. Coat with bird seed by laying it on the bird seed lined plate and turning over to coat thoroughly.
     
  7. Hang your creation outside.
