Homemade Bird Feeders with Toilet Paper Rolls

Homemade Bird Feeders

Ok, I admit I found this green craft idea on Pinterest! But I thought it was really great for my preschooler and oh so easy and quick and fun to go outside and hang on the trees! It’s basically self-explanatory so I am just going to add in basic steps. My preschooler loved slathering the peanut butter on the toilet paper rolls! I love finding crafts for kids that are just a little bit messy and also fun for my kids.

Step One: Gather your materials

Our birds have been really enjoying their Homemade Bird Feeders over the last few days. It’s great to see our friends happy and flittering around!
