Get stuck in and create a simple hanging bird feeder packed full of nutrients and high fat for gorgeous garden birds.
What you will need:
8 tbsp Nature Nurture Kids Bird Food
6 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp peanut butter (no added sugar or salt)
Small cookie cutters
With the help of a grown up, carefully melt the coconut oil in a saucepan on a medium to low heat.
Once the coconut oil has melted, add the peanut butter and stir to combine.
Pour the coconut and peanut mixture into a large bowl over the bird seed mix. Stir thoroughly.
Make sure the mixture has cooled a little. Using your hands or a spoon, load your cookie cutter with the seed mix. Make sure to push firmly onto the mixture, compacting it tight.
Once full, use a pencil to push a hole through the top centre, wriggle it around a little to make sure the hole is big enough for the string to be attached.
Allow the mixture to completely cool and solidify in the cookie cutters, the best place is in a fridge.
Once solid, gently ease the seed mix from the cookie cutter. Cut a length of string and thread it through the hole, tying the ends together.
Find a shaded spot outside and hang onto a branch of a tree or anywhere safe and easily accessible by birds.
TIP: Always make sure there is a source of fresh water available near your feeders, so the birds can quench their thirst whilst they feed!
