Peanut Butter Cheerio Treat

Submitted by: Marlene Kennedy


What You’ll Need:

  • Piece of leather shoelace or string

Ingredients:

  • Cheerios or Honey Nut Cheerios
  • Peanut butter
  • Birdseed that is left in their food bowl

Steps:

  • Step 1: Tie a knot on one end of a leather shoelace. You can make it as long or short as you want.

  • Step 2: String on Cheerios leaving a couple inches at the top so you can tie it to cage wire or a hook.

  • Step 3: Spread with thin layer of peanut butter to cover cereal.

  • Step 4: Roll in the uneaten seeds that you saved when you change the food bowls or you can use fresh seeds.

  • Step 5: Hang or tie in cage and let your bird enjoy their new treat.

  • Step 6: Remove if not eaten in a day or so and make them a new one.

Once in a while, I will use dry oatmeal to coat the peanut butter with instead of the birdseed.
