5 Days of Craft – Day 3 – Cute Birdseed Treats

5 Days of Crafts

 

Welcome to Day 3 of of the 5 Days of Crafts. I thought it would be fun to add a little fun into our week trying different crafts we haven’t done before. The kids end the day with a little fun. Today’s craft was not my idea. The actual craft is called Birdseed Biscuit.

These would be a great addition if you were trying to attract birds for a nature study. It’s also nice to see the birds eat the treats that you made them.

Join us next week for 5 Days of Useful Homeschool Apps. Each day will feature a developer and some great apps and there will also be contests every day.

Directions:

First preheat oven to 170 degrees.

In your bowl add the birdseed, water and flour and mix it up. Set it aside for a second.

Spray your cookie cutters with pam and line your cookie sheet with foil.

Put your cookie cutters on the foil. Fill it with bird seed. You will have to pat it to make it even. Once you have filled the cookie cutters cut a piece of a straw and poke it through the bird seed. Yes you will leave them in while you cook. Yes you can use plastic cookie cutters. The straw and cookie cutters don’t melt.

Once you have the cookie cutter filled and straws placed you put it in the oven for an hour. Take out and let it cool completely.

Pull out the straws.

Cut some string. Push the bird treats out and hang them outside.

NOTE: These are very delicate. Only one of the three lasted as the other two broke when I tried to hang them.

Enjoy!

    We love bird watching and making treats for our feathered friends. We have made these kinds of treats with pinecones before, but I love the idea of using cookie cutters to make different shapes. So fun!

    We have so many different kinds of birds around here. We have a little family that’s in our satellite. I haven’t tried making the ones with pinecones before. We have a ton of pinecones that have fallen and I have been meaning to try making them. I might add a little more flour and water so they stick better. They are very delicate.
