Making bird feeders!

Hand Made Bird Feeders

We had a lovely morning making bird feeders last week with Jake.

We collected pine cones and then tied some wool around to make it hang.

Then we used, lard, meal-worms, bird seed and suet mixed together and then pushed into the pine cone. We then went outside and hung them from a tree
So simple!

      The birds loved them last winter. We are going to make lots more this year. It’s a great way to get little ones interested in wildlife as its fun & messy! H
