pinecones for the birds

When I was in girl scouts (or brownies...I don't know....) we made these bird feeders out of pine cones and with all the birds in this area I have been dying to make them with Hayden.

You take a pine cone, cover it in tons of peanut butter and roll it around in bird seed until the peanut butter is covered up. Then you tie a string on the pine cone and hang it in a tree!

I know the picture is not that great, but Hayden loved it...well, for sure she loved eating tons of peanut butter! Afterwards we sat on the lawn and waited for the birds to come, while hayden ran around yelling, "Come and eat, birdies!!"
