Pinecone birdfeeder

It’s funny how things happen sometimes… Last night I was telling Maggie how I wanted them to collect pinecones so we could make peanut butter & birdseed feeders for our feathered friends. The girl was horrified at the idea — the peanut butter would stick in the birds’ beaks and they’d all die! I have no idea if this is true, but was freaked out enough at the thought that I set aside that idea pronto.

Today Tor (4) came home with a pinecone bird feeder! His teachers had used Crisco instead because they had the same concern as Maggie had had.

I think he did a fab job of it! Trust me, the boy is proud of his work here :-)
