To make a pine cone bird feeder you just attach a pine cone to a piece of string and dip it into melted vegetable suet before rolling in wild birdseed. If your child does not have a nut allergy this alternative may be easier for them to be involved in – using a palette knife, you could apply a coating of peanut butter to the pine cone, again before rolling in wild birdseed or peanuts
Great fun for the kids to do. You could set up a little production line and make quite a few! The pine cones can then be hung out ready for the birds.
