My son and I made this cardboard tube bird feeder craft for our new back yard!
We are LOVING our new house, and especially our amazing back yard that leads straight onto a forest preserve. The wildlife is amazing – especially the birds! So my son and I made this simple bird feeder to try and entice them a little nearer to the house.
To make the feeder we used:
- Empty cardboard tubes
- Peanut butter (we used a reduced salt and sugar version which just seemed right, somehow!)
- Kid-friendly knife
- Bird seed
- Tray or any shallow container
White-breasted Nuthatches also dined from the new feeder – and this beautiful female Downy Woodpecker stayed for ages!
I’ve created a new Pinterest board to celebrate our new hobby!
