Did you enjoy last week’s Bird Friendly Christmas Tree? Well I took things a step further and created these wood slab ornaments and the birds love them. This project is so simple and compliments January’s workshop perfectly. Details here.
I also realize Christmas is days away and who really has time to make another craft? Well book mark this one, these ornaments can be made after Christmas because the birds will always be hungry this time of year and would enjoy a little treat like this.
Bird Seed Ornament Materials
- Wood Slabs, cut your own or purchase at a craft store
- Drill and bit
- Ribbon and scissors
- Peanut butter and bird Seed
Ornament Assembly is Easy!
Once the slabs are cut or purchased we reach the fun part of this project as it comes together rather quickly. Follow each of the steps and then hang on a standing tree for the birds to enjoy.
- Drill holes in the top of each slab
- Thread with your favorite ribbon
- Smear the front of one side with peanut butter (or both sides)
- Cover PB with Bird Seed
Look at them, aren’t they cute? This activity is so fun and comes together with little effort. This is also a neat one to keep the kids busy and in the process, explain why feeding the birds during the cold months like winter is a great idea.
It goes like this, winter temperatures that welcome snow and ice cut off natural food supplies that can cause bird starvation in high volumes. Backyard bird feeding contributes to their survival and helps them thrive during these months. It also reminds them to come back when it’s warm to help eat the garden bugs from spring through fall.
This rounds up my Christmas fun for 2017
Enjoy the Season – Merry Christmas Friends!
