Encourage birds into your garden with this simple apple bird feeder!

It can be tough for birds to find enough food during the colder months of the year. Providing food for birds is one of the most helpful things that you can do for your garden visitors, so long as you are thoughtful with your feeding. The activity below will enable you to create fantastic bird feeders to hang in their gardens or around your meeting space that will help birds to stay healthy during the winter.

READ, STEADY, GO…
HAVE LOADS OF FUN!

Once you have finished, hang your seeded apple feeder in your garden and keep an eye out for your new visitors!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

We aim to use as much natural and recycled materials in all of our activities. To make your apple bird feeder, you’ll need:

  • An apple
  • Some suitable seeds and grains (nyjer, millet, oats, and sunflower seeds work well)
  • String
