It is snowy and cold here today. The weather is making my boys worry about the poor birds left out in the cold. After playing in the snow today they kept talking about the birds so I decided we would feed them!
We made Valentine Bird Feeders to show the birds some love !
What you Need:
Applesauce – 3cups
Cinnamon – as much or as little as you like
Bottle of Glue (non-toxic and yes it is okay. Won’t hurt the birds!)
Oats – 2 cups
Cookie Cutters – metal or safe to bake
Yarn, Ribbon or String
Mix your applesauce and cinnamon
Add the entire bottle of glue (We use Elmer’s)
On a side note: The boys decided that the glue looks like bird poop.
Next stir in your oats
The end product will look similar to this. Little boys thought it looked tasty!
Lay our your cookie cutters on your baking sheet.
I use parchment underneath to ensure they don’t stick to the pan.
Fill your cookie cutters with the mixture.
We stuck in twigs and pipe cleaners to make holes for hanging.
Bake at 400 for 45 minutes.
Your house will smell SO good!
Cool a few minutes and remove from cookie cutter.
Add yarn or ribbon to hang.
I hung ours a couple hours ago. We watched from the front window and have seen two birds checking them out!
