Holiday Birdfeeder

This Holiday Birdfeeder is a great kids craft for the winter time (or anytime). When you're stringing popcorn for the Christmas tree, put some aside and 'feed it to the birds'!

Level of Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult

This craft involves threading with a needle; since each child has different levels of dexerity you'll need to judge whether or not a specific child can do this craft safely.

Here's what you'll need...

•Dried fruit (apricots and cherries were used in the picture)
•Fishing line or monofilament
•Large, thick needle (like a darning needle)

Here's how you make it...

1. Thread your needle with your fishing line. Thread on popcorn and dried fruit.

2. Hang or drape on trees and along fences and watch the winter birds come into your yard (you may even have other little creatures eating from your feeder as well!).
