What You'll Need:

  • Cardboard toilet paper tubes (one for each guest)
  • Wax paper or newspaper
  • Honey or peanut butter
  • Plastic table knives
  • Two foot pieces of yarn (one for each guest)
  • Paper plates
  • Bird seed (choose small birdseed, because it will stay on the cardboard tube more easily than larger varieties)

At the Party:
  1. Show the children how to pull a piece of yarn through the toilet paper tube and tie it in a knot.
  2. Then lay the tube on a piece of wax paper or newspaper.
  3. Let the children spread honey or peanut butter all around the outside of the cardboard tube using a plastic knife.
  4. Have several paper plates filled with bird seed.
  5. Let the children roll their toilet paper tubes in the bird seed, covering the outside as much as possible.
  6. Their birdfeeder is ready to take home and hang in a tree!
