We love feeding the birds that visit our garden. The little ones really enjoy seeing all the different types of birds arriving, watching them feed and singing their tunes. This June, we have decided to help our little furry friends out by making some easy peasy bird feeders.

This activity is excellent at building up those little hand muscles to help children with their dexterity as well as building on their hand-eye co-ordination. It's a simple task that children from age 2 onwards can participate in.  The younger children will enjoy the threading part, while the older ones will appreciate the crafting aspect.

For each child, you will need a pipe cleaner, bowl of cheerios and a piece of ribbon.

So, get outdoors and get making.

Step 1


Match the two ends of the pipe cleaner together and pinch where they join to make a V shape.

Step 2


Thread the cheerios on to the pipe cleaner on both sides of the V.

Step 3


Leave a little gap on the end of each side as this is where you will join the bird feeder together.

Step 4


Twist the loose ends together and tie on the ribbon.  Shape your bird feeder into a heart.
