Here’s one for the kids, DIY Pinecone bird feeders are such a fun activity. Kids love the process of this, probably because it’s sticky and messy, much like this slime craze we seem to be having, then the waiting and watching for birds coming in for a snack on their creation.
-A piece of dowel or straight stick
Glue your stick or dowel to the top of the pine cone then tie your twine tightly to a pine cone seed to hang.
Paint slightly melted coconut oil all over the pine cone and in the gaps.
Dip the drenched pine cone in a bowl of birdseed until completely covered and shake excess off. Place on a piece of card board and pop in a cool place or the fridge to get the coconut oil to harden.
Hang from a tree branch or other high place birds like to go.
