We love to feed the birds at our house. We love finding new ways to do this and from this site About.com Family Crafts we found just that. This was our first time using bagels to make bird feeders. We had fun doing it and the boys had to taste the bagels before we got started. I love getting outside with them and feeding the birds it is always a good time.
What you need:
peanut butter, crisco, birdseed, string, and we added some raisins.
What to do:
Mix crisco and peanut butter together in bowl, put birdseed in pan with raisins. Take all the bagels and break in half and tie string on them.Now take the peanut butter mix and spread over bagel and then press down in bird seed. Last go hang them up.
I have been playing around with photo editing features and trying different logo text and colors. So they are all different in the post:-)
What we used.
Sweet boy had to taste the bagel after big brother had one. And the bagels were safe to eat we do not give the birds bad food over here:-)
He enjoyed pressing the bagels down in the birdseed.
The birds loved them. I am sure the squirrels helped eat them too.
The boys where on the way to play on one of their play sets after we hung the feeders and little brother fell down and big brother was helping him up. This was a mommy moment for me and I wanted to share it with you all.
Please do come and visit us again. We would love to have you back.
All kids are different and only you can decide how you let your kids play. And with what materials you let them play with. My children are supervised when playing. Please keep this in mind with any post you read of mine!
