Bagel Bird Feeder

Are you looking for another fun arts and crafts idea? Or a way to use up those old bagels?  Well, this could be your solution. All you need to  create a bagel bird feeder is a stale bagel, peanut butter, string, and bird seed.

Cut the bagel in half and spread peanut butter on one side. Pour the bird seed  on a  plate and dip the bagel in the seed. Repeat for the other side of the bagel.  Cut string about twenty four inches and wrap it around the bagel, tie a knot. Hang it on the bird feeder, clothes line, or tree and you are done.

This project takes about 10 minutes to complete and is perfect for children ages 5 and up. Attract birds to your yard today!
