Cheerio bird feeder

This week we were sent ideas for feeding the birds from Alice’s nursery. This has made a good follow up to doing our RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. She wanted to make the heart so a raid of the garden box and her craft box gave us all the materials we needed.

  • Garden wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Cheerios (other brands are available)
  • String

First, we cut a length of wire and made a bend so the hoops wouldn’t fall off.

Then the cheerios can be threaded onto the wire.

Then we added the string for hanging and bent it into a heart shape.

Alice seems happy with the result. A nice little ten-minute activity with the little one.
