Can you believe it is already Wednesday. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like time is moving at warp speed and I am struggling to keep up. Before we know it Thanksgiving will be here and then the Christmas season will be upon us. We don’t decorate our homes until the day after Thanksgiving, but we do begin to make gifts and food ahead of time to be better prepared for the season.
Todays recipe is a combination of food and gift – but this food isn’t for you to eat. It’s a food treat for our feathered friends. It’s also a perfect hostess gift, a gift for a bird watcher or nature lover or – well, it’s a gift for just about anybody.
Fall and Winter are times when food in nature is not as plentiful for wild birds. You can help them out by putting out birdseed or in this case you can make birdseed cakes.
…and this is how you do it:
Add gelatin and 2 TBS of cold water…
…add 2 cups of bird seed.
Begin pressing the seed mixture into the mold…
This project was so easy and fun to do. I think this would also be a great way to get your children involved in gift making this holiday season. We hope you decide to give this project a try…and let us know what you think 🙂
