Using toilet paper roles and peanut butter to make bird food

Looking in the garden we notice that the birds almost finished all the bird cakes we’ve made. So, it is time for us to make some new food. We decide to use peanut butter and toilet paper roles to make food for the birds this time. There is one catch. Maximan can only watch while we make this. Because he has a peanut allergy. Doesn’t stop him to give us directions on what we need to do.

Step by step

Step 1. Gather all the stuff you need. Toilet paper roles, seeds for the birds, peanut butter, knife, baking tray or something where you can spread the bird seed.

Step 2. Cover your toilet paper role with a tick layer of peanut butter.

Step 3. Place the toilet paper role in the tray with the bird seeds and role it until the bird seeds are spread evenly.

Step 4. Repeat this as many times as you need.

Step 5. Hang the toilet paper roles around branches in your tree.
