Halloween has passed and winter fast approaches. If you are looking for a way to reuse any leftover pumpkins, here’s a great way to enjoy a nature activity with your kids. Turn your old pumpkin into a bird feeder! It’s easy and fun for little hands.
Start with a medium-sized pumpkin:
Cut it in half and scoop out the insides (great sensory fun for the little helpers):
Using a nail, punch out some holes on opposite sides of the pumpkin:
Use string or twine to make the holder:
Now punch out some larger holes on each side:
You can slide a twig into the larger holes to make some perches for the birds. Then hang it in a tree and fill it with some wild bird seed:
And wait for the birdies to find the food!Simple, easy and fun…and the birds will thank you.
