This easy, healthier Buffalo Chicken Dip is a healthy alternative to traditional Buffalo Chicken Dip…
These popcorn and seed based worms in dirt cups are a healthier alternative to the traditional cookie or pudding based cups. Made with foods that birds actually eat, Healthier Worms in Dirt Cup Treat is a great compliment to a DIY Bird Feeder activity for school, Girl Scouts, or Cub Scouts.
Did you know that February is National Bird Feeding Month?
It is! And what better time than now to do a fun bird feeder activity complete with a yummy treat that would make our aviary friends proud!
Recently, my daughter’s Daisy Troop did just that!
When I found out we would be making Pinecone Bird feeders, I volunteered to bring the snack. I had been wanting to try those fun Worms in Dirt Cups for a while and thought this was the perfect opportunity.
Usually Worms in Dirt Cups are made with pudding or cookie crumbles, but I wanted to create a healthier option that was still super fun. So I substituted popcorn and sunflower seeds for the usual pudding or cookie crumbles. I did use some chocolate chips but you could always leave them out.

Clear plastic cocktail cups
Add the popcorn and sunflower seeds to the cups. Mix them together. Then sprinkle a few dried cranberries and chocolate chips on top. Finally, add the gummy worms.
Voila! You’re done.
Make like a bird and dive that beak in! Enjoy!
Pinecone Bird Feeder
We also made a pinecone bird feeder. You just take a pinecone, cover it with peanut butter, and then cover the peanut butter with bird seed.
Then, take it home and hang it on a special tree, sit back, and watch the birds enjoy their yummy snack!
