The birdseed pine cone feeders

Remember when we went to Turkey Creek and Daughter told me all about how to make bird feeders out of pine cones, peanut butter and birdseed? yea, well, Daughter didn't forget.

I FINALLY remembered to pick up some birdseed.

tasting again.
I predicted to BBWP that when we did this project one of the kids would try to eat the birdseed WHILE tweeting like a bird. Luckily, they stuck to the peanut butter.

I'm glad I put the pine cones in this container to cover them with birdseed. It means that I was able to collect a lot of it for recoating next time.

I'm double glad I scooped the peanut butter out of the jar and into a bowl for this project.

When Son spotted a bird eating from it he screamed, "BIRD HAPPY! BIRD HAPPY!" That was cute.

EDIT: We did this about three weeks ago and I'm starting to wonder when I'm going to have to climb back up on that ladder and recoat the pine cones!
