These bird feeders are super easy to make too! All you need are CheeriosTM and pipe cleaners! I considered using string, but decided to use the pipe cleaners instead so our 2-year old could participate. And it worked out great! She was able to manipulate them while my preschoolers and older kids focused on their designs.
To make your own Cheerio Bird Feeder, simply string Cheerios onto the pipe cleaner. Leave a little extra room at each end of the pipe cleaner so you can twist together two or more. For our youngest, I twisted one end of the pipe cleaner around a Cheerio so the other Cheerios did not all fall off. Once you have strung two or more pipe cleaners with Cheerios, twist the ends together to make your own design. Just make sure the Cheerios don't fall off!
Your children can create any design they want!
Our kiddos also wanted to make Cheerio bracelets!
Then take your bird feeder outside and hang it somewhere where you can watch for birds or other animals!
Are you wondering how this fun little Cheerio Bird Feeder can help your local school? It's easy! See the Box Tops for Education label across the front of the Cheerios box?
I may share at any of these parties!
