"Sunflower" Bird Feeder

Tomorrow my kids are having an art group with their friends, and we're going to read about sunflowers and make this "sunflower" bird feeder.  We did a test run today just to make sure everything went as planned.

Here's how we made them:

 First, what you'll need.  Peanut butter, birdseed, a piece of poster board, a spoon, a string, and the most important thing--A PLASTIC PLATE HOLDER!  (I found my plastic plate holder at the dollar store--they came in a pack of four). I used my hot glue gun to attach the poster board to center of the plate holder.

Then I let the kids spread around the peanut butter.
 And spread some more.
 And after some excellent spreading, we had this:

 We sprinkled on the birdseed...
and then used a piece of yarn to hang it from a tree (next to a lower branch so that the birds have a place to stand and eat.


  1. I bet these looked great hanging in the trees! I'll be featuring this on The Crafty Crow soon :)
