Easy 5-Minute Bird Feeder

Hi Mommas! Today I have a simple and fun craft idea that you and your toddler can do together. Let’s jump right in:

So this craft is super fast and only takes 5 items:

Now, you can either poke a hole into the rice cake or piece of toast, or do what I did, which is to tie the string around it. I tried to poke a hole in my rice cake, and it was much too dry and crumbled apart, but it might work for a piece of toast.

Next, you will want to slather some peanut butter onto the side of the rice cake. You could do both sides, but for simplicity’ sake (and it’s much less messy!), I just opted to cover one side.

Now, take your seeds or birdseed, and (ideally) place a few at a time onto the peanut butter. Or, you can do what my toddler did, and completely dump the bowl onto the rice cake. 😉

Boom. Haha.

Now, you can definitely use the extra seeds to make a second feeder, or, if you’re feeling a tad snacky, you can eat the second rice cake. 🙂

And that’s about it! Go ahead and hang up your bird feeder, and enjoy watching the birds flock over to check it out.

Let me know if you try this with your kids, or if you have another favorite Springtime craft.
