For the Birds

Today the kids and I made bird feeders today!

We started with ice cream cones (just like our Christmas trees!), cut off the tips, made a knot in some string and fed it through.

The girls coated the cones in peanut butter, then we stuck on lots of birdseed and cheerios.

Charley just coated his cone and then sucked it all off

This project is messy, very messy.

But the easy way to cleanup... scrape it all onto a place mat and throw it out the back door!

Ta-da! Wait until our faithful squirrel and his wife get a whiff of this.
