Cheerio Bird Feeder Craft for Kids

This is the first summer that I feel like I need to have a “bag of tricks” to keep my oldest little guy entertained.  I find that if I have a project or two waiting in the wings for those times that he seems restless or uninterested in everything, we all tend to have a better day.

My advice?

Be prepared with tons of fun {and easy} summertime crafts and activities to keep those little hands busy!  Why not make a few birds happy in the mean while?  Kill two birds with one stone…

I LOVE this craft idea because it’s so super easy and inexpensive.  I’m guessing, in fact, that you’ve already got everything you need to make a few with your little ones.

You’ll need:

circular cereal such as Cheerios or Fruit Loops

pipe cleaners

thin twine

scissors

a tree to hang your bird feeder

My little guy is almost 3 and he did the stringing part completely by himself.  I didn’t even need to show him how to put the cereal onto the pipe cleaner.  He was just eager to get started I suppose.

Once just about all of his pipe cleaner was covered, we connected either end and twisted them together, making a circle.  I then cut a small piece of twine and tied it to the top of the circle, so we’d have a place to hang it in the tree outside.

Easiest craft ever, and it kept him occupied for almost an hour {assembling, snacking a little, and choosing a tree outside to hang our creations}.

I’m sure your little crafter will love this project as much as mine did!
