We did a little crafting on a cloudy day and the birds benefited.
These bird feeders are the easiest thing ever and the kids loved making them: Just take an empty toilet paper roll, spread with peanut butter, then roll with bird seeds. Slide them right onto a tree branch and you have yourself a little snack for the birds.
The birds attacked these in just one day. But no worries, there will always be plenty of toilet paper rolls around here. :)
