We have so many birds in this area, and I always want to put food out for them. We just had a big snow storm, so I figured today would be the perfect day to craft some 100% edible bird feeders.
DIY Bird Feeders
What you'll need. First, you'll need some dried out bread, birdseed, and peanut butter. You'll also need some cookies cutters, string, and a knife.
First, you'll want to cut out a shape in your bread.
Next, you'll want to spread some peanut butter onto one side of the cut out bread.
You'll then want to dip the bread, peanut butter side down, into the bird seed. I suggest putting bird seed into a bowl to make this process easier.
Next, you'll repeat this process on the other side.
You'll then want to grab your ribbon, cut it with scissors, and tie it in a loose loop.
Finally, you can head outside and place your bird feeders around tree branches. This DIY is perfect for folks of all ages, and the cold critters outside will thank you! Make sure you hang it from a branch easily visible from a window! That way, you can watch your bird friends as they enjoy their treat!

I have made an “After Christmas” tree with my preschool students and would hang different items for the birds. We would hang them on my leftover tree using jute or string instead of colored ribbon. More organic and recyclable for birds. Strings of Cheerios, mini bagels, and slices of oranges were favorites!
