Sugar Cone Bird Feeder

Over the last few months, we have been having a ton of fun watching the birds in our yard. We’re finding blue birds, cardinals, finches and more.

As the weather is getting cooler, we thought these easy sugar cone bird feeders would be a fun activity to make for our bird friends. They’re super easy for kids of all ages to make.

We are always looking for screen free fun or ways to keep the kids entertained on rainy or cold days, so I think you will find this to be the perfect activity.
