We made bird feeders several months ago out of recycled items and they didn't last thru the weather very well. So when we were in the Dollar Tree couple weeks ago I picked up a couple bird houses so the kids could make reuse able bird feeders.
The kids took peanut butter and spread it on the wood house then sprinkled bird seed on it. It worked out great and we had some birds and even squirrels
Tonight we hung them off the deck and J got to see the squirrel eating the peanut butter and seeds. I tried to get a picture, but they are way too fast for me.
