  • berries, nuts, or grains, string or wire


  • Have you ever felt REALLY hungry? What do you love to eat when you’re hungry?
  • Every living thing needs to eat — even birds. Let’s make a bird feeder to help the birds find food.
  • Let’s string small pieces of fruit like grapes, raisins, berries, and grains like cereal or popcorn onto a piece of string or wire.
  • Let’s tie our bird feeder into a circle and hang it from a tree outside.
  • Let’s watch for birds to come and have a snack. How do you think they feel to find such yummy food? Have you ever felt that way? How do you think they feel after they’ve eaten?


Snack - a light meal
Feed - to give food to
Hunger - the feeling of wanting or needing food
