Understanding the world around us is an important developmental skill.
Help your child interact with nature with a tactile experience that also builds
fine motor skills, made from a few simple materials around your home (and yard)!
We'll be making these in the museum on Friday, November 22nd.
string, yarn or ribbon
peanut butter, shortening or lard
spoon or craft stick
1. Tie a piece of string around the pinecone to create a hanging loop
2. Spread peanut butter or alternative over all sides of pinecone
3. Pour 1/2” deep layer of birdseed in a bowl, sprinkle or roll pinecone in birdseed
4. Hang your feeder on a tree or other outdoor structure and watch the birds feast
on your creation!
