Cardboard Tube Bird Feeder

This is a cross post from my TP Craft site. If you are interested in other crafty projects using toilet paper and paper towel rolls then you should check it out.

Cardboard Tube Bird Feeder Supply List: toilet paper roll or paper towel tube, peanut butter, string or twine, bird seed, spatula

Use the spatula to spread peanut butter on your cardboard tube. Make sure to get it on nice and thick.

Once it is covered, roll your tube in bird seed.

Thread a piece of string through the tube and tie it in a knot.

Hang it outside and wait for your little bird friends to stop by for a bite to eat.

Book Suggestion: We checked out Backyard Bird Watching for Kids: How to Attract, Feed, and Provide Homes for Birds from the library and it had some great ideas for kids about how to attract birds into your backyard. It has very simplistic language that is easy for a preschooler to understand. Cole loved the bright pictures and all the interesting information about birds.
