You only need a few simple supplies and ingredients to make these tasty homemade bird treats.
Start by shaping each pipe cleaner into a heart shape. The 2 ends will meet at the bottom of the heart, but don’t twist them closed yet.
Put the cereal pieces onto the heart pipe cleaners until they are tightly pressed together, and there is about a half inch of pipe cleaner showing at the two open ends. *Children love threading the Froot Loops onto the pipe cleaner and it’s great for a fine motor activity.
Twist the two open ends together so your heart is closed now. Most children as young as preschoolers can twist their ends together but might need a little finishing to make sure it is secure before you hang them.
