Today in the preschool classroom at my church our teacher, Becky, had the most wonderful pinecone craft for the children to make.
I asked permission to post this easy, fun project.
If January is an indicator, snow will cover our area for a good two months. I’m a nature enthusiast and feed my birds all winter long. In severe weather seed is hard to find.
You will need pinecones. I purchase bags of them after Christmas when they go on sale. You may have pine trees to gather from.
Twine or wire and wrap around cone before proceeding.
Peanut butter, knife, and plate. Spread peanut butter over pinecone.
Place pinecone in seed and pour seed over cone until completely covered.
These make wonderful gifts in the winter months for shut-ins or bird lovers. What a joy to sit by a window with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and watch our feathered friends feed.
Have fun. I’m making mine as gifts.
What a fun way to enjoy watching the birds. I bet kids love making these. Thanks for your great ideas, Pat.
Deb, the children had a ball. We put the finished cone in paper bags because a few
seeds fell off. Once set, the seed adheres to the peanut butter. Thanks for stopping by.
They would be a nice gift for nursing homes or assisted living facilities.
They are, Bev. The grand kids made some with me last night. It’s
a fun project. Thanks for dropping by. Pat 🙂
