Before you get started

Items you will need

  • An apple
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Apple corer or other tool


Make your seeded apple


Make a hole through the apple

Cut a hole through the apple

Ask an adult for help to cut a hole through your apple, removing the core.

You can use an apple corer or another sharp tool to create a hole.


Add seeds to the apple

Take the pointy end of sunflower seeds and pierce them into the apple.

Using the seeds, you could draw a picture or write a word!


Hang the apple

Hang the apple in an open space where birds are likely to feel safe (somewhere away from cats!).

Make sure there’s a branch nearby for birds to stand on while they eat.
