DIY Bird Feeders…

Our first Calvert Caterpillars session of the year started with making bird feeders, so simple to make and the children loved it! Particularly the mixing and generally making a bit of a mess. 
Simply mix bird seed with coconut oil and squash into a cookie cutter, simpler shapes work better. Take a straw and make a hole in one corner (with enough bird seed so it won’t fall apart when hung) then pop in the fridge to harden. 

I’m thinking these would be so pretty at Christmas time too, a pretty ribbon and I wonder if birds can eat edible glitter?!
