Pinecone Bird Feeder


During this season of giving, encourage children to think of the needs of pets and wildlife, too. Making a pinecone bird feeder with peanut butter or with shortening and sunflowers seeds, can help our feathered friends get through the winter months.

Or perhaps children can make toys for their own pet or a classroom pet. A stuffed sock for a dog or colored feathers at the end of a stick for a cat will keep pets happy and entertained.
