For the craft, the kids made birdfeeders from pinecones, peanut butter, and raisins. It was a challenge to keep him from eating the peanut butter.
This week during the ice storm we made some bird feeders of our own using this recipe from Family Fun.
3/4 cup birdseed
1 tablespoon flour
2 tablespoons water
Spray or wipe a cookie cutter with oil and place it on a foil covered cookie sheet. Pack the mixture into the cutter, inserting half a straw near the top to create a hole for hanging.
Bake the biscuit (with the straw) in a 170 degree over until the biscuit is hard--about one hour. Let it cool. Remove the straw, thread a ribbon through the hole, and hang it outside in a sheltered spot.
