P is for Pinecone Birdfeeder

 Any time children can interact with nature it is a good thing. Projects that involve nature bring a connection to the outdoors and the kids love it.

Pinecone Birdfeeder

Collect pinecones as a group or have each student bring in a pinecone for “homework.” Wrap a foot-long piece of yarn or string around the middle of a pinecone and tie, leaving at least 6-inch loop dangling. Using a plastic knife, spread peanut butter in the crevices of the pinecone. For an added treat, roll in birdseed. Hang in a tree outside a classroom window to watch the birds feast!

About Cindy A. Johnson

I live in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. I love to read, work in my flower and vegetable gardens, feed and watch the birds in the yard, sit on the front porch looking at the mountains and go camping. I also like to watch wildlife, including my cats and dog (ha!). I write online articles on a variety of subjects. Check out my book reviews at: http://readerjots.wordpress.com, wonderful nature stuff at http://mynaturenotes.wordpress.com and assorted articles on interesting stuff at http://Esmeowl12.hubpages.com. My first ebook was published in January 2012: "Alphamania: An Alphabet Resource for Teachers and Parents." Check out the blog at https://alphabetletters.wordpress.com.
