Easy DIY Bird Feeders for Kids

By Rebecca Yee

The world is all still a mystery to kids. There is nothing more magical than nature. It’s a huge part of our lives that we take for granted sometimes.

One easy way to show your kids the magic of nature in your own backyard, is making a bird feeder to draw in these beautiful creatures.

Here are a few easy DIY bird feeders you and your kids can make at home.

1.) Easy Toilet Paper Roll Craft - by The Resourceful Mama

All you need is:

  • Peanut Butter/almond butter/nut butter

  • Craft/Popsicle Sticks/spoon

  • Bird seed

  • Toilet paper rolls

  • Twine/yarn/string

How to make: Spread the peanut butter on the toilet paper roll, roll it in the birdseed, put the twine through the hole and hang it up outside for the birds to enjoy!

2.) Paper Bowl Bird Feeder - by Non Toy Gifts

All you need is:

  • paper bowl

  • paint and paintbrush (optional)

  • string

  • scissors

  • hole puncher

  • Cheerios

  • bird seeds

How to make: If you want to let your kids personalize their feeders, they can paint it as the first step. This step is optional. Use the hole puncher to make 4 holes on the paper bowl rim. Cut two pieces of string and thread them through the holes. Thread Cheerios through the strings. Once you’re done with the Cheerios, tie up the strings two by two and then all of them together. Add bird seeds and hang your bird feeder in a tree.

3.) Apple Birdseed Homemade Feeders - by Natural Beach Living

All you need is:

  • Birdseed

  • Peanut butter/almond butter/nut butter

  • Apples

  • Twine/String

  • Screws

How to make: Cut the apples in half lengthwise and hollow out the insides with a spoon or knife. Fill each apple with birdseed mixture, set on a sheet pan, and put in the fridge for 1-2 hours or until firm.

((If you don’t want to hollow out the Apple, spread peanut butter on the open part of the apple, then dip in bird seed.))

Poke a screw into the top of each apple and tie a piece of twine to it. Hang outside for all the birds to enjoy!
