Crafts with the Kids: Pine Cone Bird Feeder

The kids and I had some fun this morning - we made Pine Cone Bird Feeders.  I remember making these when I was a kid and I figured the boys would like it too.  Anthony was more interested in getting the peanut butter all over his hands than actually helping, which was what I expected from the 2 year old!  Nathan really enjoyed it!

The neighbors behind us have some White Pines growing in their yard (the Michigan state tree) and some of the pine cones had fallen into our yard, so I gathered a few up and we got started on our craft project.

I admit that our pine cone feeders aren't exactly the coolest looking ones on the block, but we had fun making them.
