Pumpkin Bird Feeder

Updated: Oct 7, 2022

A super simple and easy activity that's perfect for mini pumpkin pickers. It's a great way to reduce waste and help wild birds find something to eat.



Things You Need:

  • Left over pumpkin

  • String

  • Bird seed

  • Something to make holes- we used a wooden skewer

How To:

  1. Cut your left over pumpkin in half

  2. Put four holes in it- one in each 'side'. WARNING: it can be sharp so please be careful of little hands

  3. Thread string through the holes (use the skewer to wiggle it through)

  4. Bring the strings up and tie at the top

  5. Fill with seeds and a few cheeky meal worms if you have them

  6. Hang from a tree

  7. Grab your binoculars and bird watching book

Did You Know

Pumpkins are poisonous to Hedgehogs! Though hedgehogs find pumpkins very tasty, they're actually really bad for them. To help keep them safe by placing any leftover pumpkins in a high place or off the ground where they can't react them.
