Happy Monday! Today is Day 8 of our 31 Days of Outdoor Activities for Toddlers challenge! We had a super busy weekend but were excited to make these cute Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeders. We brought all of our materials outside and assembled them at my mom’s house!
We originally made these bird feeders years ago when I first started blogging as an activity for our Days of Creation unit (we also made them using pine cones too). They are so simple to make and such a great way to recycle old toilet paper rolls!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Cardboard Rolls (from either toilet paper or paper towels)
Spatula to spread
A flat tray
*I found it was easiest to go ahead and hole punch the toilet paper rolls before beginning.
1. Let your child spread the peanut butter onto the toilet paper roll. Inevitably, more peanut butter ended up in Little Sister’s mouth than on the toilet paper roll. :)
2. Spread some seed onto a tray and let your child roll the toilet paper roll (now covered in peanut butter) into the birdseed.
3. Attach a string and let your little one start searching for just the right tree to hang it on!
Now we get to look for all the birds (and inevitably squirrels) who will enjoy a nice snack!
