On the fifth day of Creation, we learn that God creates the fish of the sea and birds of the air. For this day, we made homemade bird feeders.
Here’s what you’ll need to make the bird feeders: pinecones (we went walking at the park and found several), yarn, peanut butter, and birdseed.
|1. Gather your pinecones and other materials.|
|2. Tie a piece of yarn tightly around the pinecone and then tie a loop at the top.|
|3. Slap a glob of peanut butter into a bowl.|
|4. Let your child use a popsicle stick to spread the peanut butter all over the pinecone (I had to help with this part).|
|5. Put the peanut-butter pinecone into the bowl of birdseed and pour seed over the top.|
|All ready to hang!|
|6. Take the bird feeders outside and hang them close to a window. Enjoy watching the birds eat from them!|

And here is the song for Day 5. Don’t worry, I won’t be trying out for American Idol anytime soon! :)
