Last fall, my therapy team and I put together a simple craft for our patients. Most of them enjoy being outdoors and working with their hands, so this activity worked perfectly!
Here is a list of the items needed:
- Opened pine cones
- Peanut butter
- Birdseed mix
- Disposable tablecloths (this can get messy)
- Aluminum tins
First: Tie a string around the pine cones.
Second: Mix peanut butter with oatmeal.
Third: Spread the mixture thoroughly/evenly onto the pine cone.
Fourth: Pour the bird seed into the aluminum tin, and roll the pine cone until completely covered.
Fifth: Hang your bird feeder on a tree branch for the neighborhood birds to feast.
Hope you enjoy this activity as much as we did!

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.
