Apple Feeders

Happy Autumnal Equinox! (or Happy Mabon to those who call it so) The equinox started last night but today is the first official day of Autumn! The more I search for my own spiritual path in this world the more drawn to the earth I feel. I can’t call myself a Pagan per say, but I do feel connected to their very old world connections to the Mother Earth and it`s energy. Today we are celebrating the harvest season and all it`s bounty.

To get started, here’s an Earth friendly activity!

Apple Feeders

-Half apples and rest them (cut side down) on a napkin or towel. (That one is obviously from Subway;) This will dry the side a bit so that the PB can stick better.
-I find cutting a little bit into the apple on either side, creating a groove for the twine, helps it to stay in place better.
-Tie a fair length of twine (the more natural the better) around the apple halves. Keep in mind where you’ll be tying them to decide the length you need.
-Smear peanut butter on the open side of each Apple half.
-Dip it in your birdseed.
-Toddlers will now marvel at how the seeds have coated the peanut butter. Curb their instinct to take a bite!
-Hang from branches outside!
