Build a Pine Cone Bird Feeder!
For kindergarteners, the natural world can be a dynamic and wonderful classroom, filled with opportunities to learn, just about any season of the year. Explore nature science with your child and build a bird feeder with only a few things from around the house (and yard). Here's a kindergarten science craft that brings birds to your yard—and a smile to your child's face!
What You Need:
- Bird seed for birds in your area
- Flat baking tray
- A good-sized pine cone (best if it’s 5” or larger, with plenty of space between bristles)
- Smooth peanut butter
- Blunt table knife
- Table covering—this activity can get messy!
