Bird Treats

Try this yummy bird feeder idea!
(bagel, peanut butter, lard, oats or bird seed, string)

  • Mix peanut butter with equal parts lard or shortening. spread on a bagel, roll the bagel in oats mixed with bird seed.
  • Tie a string the bagel.  Then tie it up in a tree or wherever you please.


  1. Mix lard and peanut butter together so the peanut butter doesn't get stuck in the birds' gizzards.  That can be hazardous for them, and the lard provides lubrication.
  2. Squirrels LOVE these treats!!


Bird Feeder from Pine Cone

Charli Holland sent in an idea for an easy to make bird feeder.

"You can also make bird feeders with pine cones. All you have to do is get a pine cone spread peanut butter over it, then roll it in bird seeds, then tie string around it an hang it out for children to watch new birds arriving."

Note from Creative Kids at Home:
If a child is allergic to peanut butter, use tahini (ground sesame seeds) in its place.
