Easy Homemade Birdfeeder Craft

April 11, 2020 9:21 AM | Anonymous member

Here’s a fun activity to do while we are all at home! I found it on www.littlepassports.com... they are brilliant! Check them out if you aren't familiar.

So let's make gelatin bird feeders to hang outside. The kids will love to watch the birds and if old enough can take notes on the different birds in your area who come to feed on them!

These can be made out of birdseed and peanut butter, karo syrup, or unflavored gelatin. We chose gelatin to minimize the attraction to insects in our area.

Supplies

½ c. boiling water

2 packets unflavored gelatin

1 ½ c. birdseed

Cookie cutters

Straws cut into 2” segments

Parchment paper

Baking sheet

String

birdfeeder supplies

Instructions

Add gelatin to bowl birdfeeder craft

Add the two gelatin packets to ½ c. boiling water, and whisk until dissolved.

stir in birdseed for birdfeeder

Stir in the birdseed.

pour birdseed into molds for birdfeeder

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and place cookie cutters on top. Spoon birdseed mixture into cookie cutters. Add a straw and press down. This will create an opening when the birdseed has dried for the string. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Carefully pop each bird seed shape out of the cookie cutters and let dry on the counter for a few more hours (or overnight).

Attach string through hole birdfeeder

Attach a string through the hole, and attach to a tree.  Watch and wait for a few hours, you’ll see birds come to nibble!
