I try to find things to do to keep Tater from harassing trying to get my attention when I’m trying to blog clean and take care of the million things I’m supposed to do everyday. Auntie S came over a few weekends ago and her and Taterspent the afternon together, during which they made little Birdseed Pine Cones. It kept him busy for a lot longer than anything else ever has, and the birds love them! We keep making new ones and hanging them in our trees – it’s so much fun to watch the birds eat from them!
- Get a few pine cones
- Spread peanut butter all over the pine cone
- Roll the peanut butter pine cone in birdseed
- Cut a very long string of yarn. Tie one end to the stem of the pine cone and the other end to the tree branch
- Have fun watching the birds!
Let me know if you try it, and if you have any success with it! Thank you Auntie S for the idea, and thanks to hubby for keeping the pine cones freshly buttered and seeded!
