Squirrel Slinky Feeder

My daughter is a fan of squirrels and decided they needed a little feeder just like the birds have in our yard. I thought it was a great idea and we brainstormed together to come up with the perfect way to leave our furry friends a little snack.

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    We collected a few materials we already had, and started working to make our very first squirrel feeder!

  • Step 2

    We experimented with different ways our slinky could hold the nuts. It seemed to work best when it was in a half circle. Using the pipe cleaner to hold it together worked great.

  • Step 3

    We filled it with nuts and were ready to head to the yard to hang it from our tree.

  • Done!

    We placed it close to a branch since squirrels don't fly! The next day we saw our little visitors stopping by for a snack. It was an exciting moment in our house!
