Earth Day at Wicker Park

My son came home from school one year with a box of handmade pine cone bird feeders as a Christmas gift. The birdies were happy for months! I think it's a super cute and easy project for Earth Day! Below is a recipe that we have used many times since. Enjoy!

For each Pine Cone Bird Feeder you will need:
  • A large, open pine cone
  • Vegetable shortening, or peanut butter (soy nut butter for those with allergies)
  • Bird seed
  • string or twine
Tie string to a pine cone. Cover the pine cone with the the shortening or peanut butter. Roll the pine cone in birdseed and then hang it from a tree branch outside.
See? Easy!
