1 Hour : Make It : Bird Feeder Wreath

This is my version of an idea I saw in a magazine years ago:

plain grapevine wreath, available at craft stores
twine or heavy duty string
cranberries, cheerios, raisins, popcorn, or other small bird-friendly foods

Make garlands by stringing the foods on the twine. Older children can use the needle to pierce cranberries, etc.; young children can easily string cheerios. Wrap the garlands around the wreath and hang your "feeder" in a place that is very visible to your children. For me, a big part of the fun of having bird feeders is watching my children watch the birds.
