Easy Craft Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeder

Toilet paper Bird Feeder

Making a toilet  paper roll bird feeder is a quick and easy to create with the kids! My kids love watching the birds year round and this bird feeder is their favorite because its so fun and can be a bit messy. I recommend making these outside or with lots of newspaper on the table inside. Give the kids a plastic knife and let them spread away. This a great way to repurpose household items, increase fine motor strenght (spreading) and feed those hungry birds!

Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeders Supplies:

  • Empty toilet paper roll
  • Peanut butter
  • Rope or string to hang up
  • Bird seed
  • Container to roll the toilet paper roll through seed in

Directions for Toilet Paper Roll Bird Feeder:

  •  Spread Peanut Butter over the toilet paper roll
  • Roll the roll through the seed and string the roll
  • Hang on tree branch and enjoy the birds eating the seeds!!

You can make this educational by identifying different birds that come to your feeder!!!

    I remember making these as a kid! I think we also used paper cones at some point, though I’m not sure where we would have gotten those. These would be a great girl scout project, so I’m so glad you posted to make me remember 🙂

      Cutting a circle from cardboard (cereal boxes?) and then cutting into 1/2 circles to turn into cones would be one way to use cones of you really wanted them. We happen to have a sno-cone maker & cones so those would always work for us too. But either way I love the idea.

    What a cool and easy DIY project, how fun! This caught my eye because just this morning we rescued a bird that somehow got in our house and flew into the bedroom! How? No idea!! This will be a fun way to keep our feathered friends happy! Stopping by from Let’s Get Real link party!

    My feathered friends will appreciate this and hopefully, the squirrels won’t run away with it. They climb on the roof and knock down the small feeder and take off with it. Dastardly critters!

    I feel so bad throwing those paper toilet rolls into the recyclable bin, and I’ve tried to come up with creative uses for them. I’m going to try it out this summer. :o)
