Homemade Bird Feeders: Christmas Treats for our Feathered Friends!

Yesterday morning, our Kindness Elves had a new challenge for us; to make tasty treats for our feathered friends!

So we got right to it!

We traced our cookie cutters onto a piece of cardboard...

Cut them out, and punched holes in them...

Then we spread smooth peanut butter on each of the shapes...

... while we prepared some yummy treats for our bird friends - some seeds (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and linseeds)

Ava stuck the seeds to the peanut butter all by herself...

... and voila! Yummy snacks for our feathered friends...

Now all we need to do is thread some string through the hole...

and hang them up in the garden for some feathered festivities!

Why not go make some yourself??


  1. What a great idea! Clever little kindness elves coming up with this idea ;)

  2. That looks like a great easy bird feeder. I wanted to make a bird feeder, was looking for pinecones to use, but can't find any. I might have to pinch your idea instead. Thank you for sharing with #LetKidsBeKids

  3. I love these, so simple and such fun. Can he birds get the seeds off easily with their beaks? Mich x

  4. This is a brilliant idea - my boys would love to do this! Thanks for the inspiration :) #LetKidsBeKids

  5. Are you sure they're for birds? They look so yummy I could eat them.

  6. What a lovely idea - might get the boys having a go x

  7. That's a lovely idea, I love seeing all the different birds in my garden. #LetKidsBeKids
