From birdseed balls to bird seed ornaments, learn more about making all kinds of bird treats.
We have lots of birds in our yard and I got to thinking about them. During the summer months, they all gather at our fountain and fly right into our windows (seriously, I hear a crash every week)! But during the winter months, what are they doing around here? It's cold, dreary and wet.
So, I picked up some birdseed and decided to use some things in our pantry to make some homemade bird food.
Make All Kinds of Birdseed Treats from Birdseed Balls to Birdseed Blocks
To help feed those birds during the winter months you can make all kinds of bird treats. I'm going to round up a few below but for most of them you just combine birdseed and a few pantry items, like peanut butter and lard, to make the bird treats. I think this is such a perfect kid's project on a rainy afternoon.
