The Cheerios® Cookbook shares a recipe! Need a rainy-day project? Gather a group of crafty kids and create sweet "tweets" for the birds.


Sharpened pencil
Sugar ice cream cone
Pipe cleaner (chenille stem)
Table knife
Creamy peanut butter
Cheerios™ cereal


  • 1 Use the pencil to poke a hole in the pointed end of the ice cream cone.
  • 2 Twist a knot in the end of the pipe cleaner. Thread the pipe cleaner into the ice cream cone and out the hole (the knot will hold the pipe cleaner in place).
  • 3 Use the table knife to spread the peanut butter on the outside of the cone. Press the cereal all over the peanut butter to cover the cone. Sprinkle the birdseed over the cone, pressing it into the peanut butter with your fingers.

Expert Tips

Hang this feeder near a window where you can easily watch the birds with your child. Have a bird book handy so you can look up the types of birds you see.
