Homemade Bird Feeders


Celebrate Earth Day by creating a natural and biodegradable bird feeder with your child! 


  • Biodegradable twine (you can also use any type of yarn or pipe cleaners) 
  • Cheerios


  • Place a piece of twine, string or a pipe cleaner and place on a tray with a bowl of cheerios or similar cereal. 
  • Tie a knot at the end of your twine so the cereal cannot fall through.  
  • Have your child thread the cheerios onto the piece of twine. Leave one inch uncovered on each side. 
  • Tie ends together
  • Head outside and help your child find a tree to hang the bird feeder.
  • Watch as the birds come and snack!
