As it is starting to draw closer to winter and food for wildlife is becoming more scarce, I thought it would be a good time to share this simple, fun activity we did at home recently.
How To Make An Apple Bird Feeder
You Will Need…
- Twigs – Thick enough to be a perch but thin enough to fit through an apple.
- String or raffia
- Peanut butter
Step by Step Instructions
Core the apple.
Carefully push the sticks through the apple. You might need to use a knife to help make a hole first.
Tie the string through the apple. Use it to also hold the sticks in place if possible.
Use the peanut butter as ‘glue’ to stick the seeds on.
Hang it onto a tree branch. Then just sit back and observe the birds enjoying their treat!
