Make an orange bird feeder

This article, entitled Make An Orange Bird Feeder comes from partner site

This is a fun activity the kids can do during the summer. (Depending on your child’s age, they might need a bit of help with the sharp objects.)

Step 1

Choose a large orange for this project.

Step 2

Cut the orange in half and scoop out the orange section. I ran a sharp knife around the inside, cut the segments while they were still intact, and then spooned it out. I then scraped as much of the pulp out as I could with a spoon.

Step 3

Use a big nail to poke a hole on either side of the orange.

Step 4

Run kitchen twine through one of the holes. You can use tape on one end of the twine, which will make it easier to pull through the hole. Once you get one end of the twine though a hole, tie it in a double knot.

Step 5

Add a bit of peanut butter and spread it around. This will help keep the first coating of seeds adhere to the orange section and be a “surprise treat” once the birds get to it. You can add just enough seed to cover the peanut butter coating or fill it up all the way, which is what I did since we have a lot of birds.

Step 6

Thread the other end of the twine through the other hole, tie a double knot, and it’s ready to hang.

Step 7

Super easy, cheap, and green. Our birds enjoy it and I get pleasure from watching them.
