This is a activity we love doing every fall and I have shown on here but it has never been our actually pictures. So this year I remembered to grab pictures, well as many as I could. It was still a messy process and my kids still made a mess but it's allowed when doing something so fun.
So to start you need to collect pine cones. I did not realize sense we moved there is little to no pine cone trees around, so this was a little hard. We had to go for a very long walk ;) (they slept well that night)
After collecting many pine cones we left them outside in a bucket so any unwanted bugs had a chance to leave. The next day we tied string around each and painted them with peanut butter. Once completely covered we rolled them around in bird seed, and that is it. We went for another walk in the woods and found a down tree, it became the perfect place to hang them.
Nice way to feed wildlife and give back.
