This is for the birds!

Last week, I received the most lovely gift…for my birds!  A friend of mine gave me two bird seed ornaments.  As a bird lover, I was overjoyed (excuse the Angelina Ballerina-ism) to have them.  I had been meaning to make some with my kiddos.  Now I had two and a peaked interest to make my own.

I found a recipe and set a plan to work on making our own once my son went to sleep.

Here is our set up:

I measure and my little chicky pours:

She did most of the mixing and filled quite a few up.  Be careful, this stuff is sticky!!

We used what cookie cutters we had even though some of them had some crazy corners :/

We had a bear, hedgehog, star, angel, snowflake, fox, gingerbread man, two hearts, tree and a snail.

I believe the birds enjoyed them!

If you Google, bird seed ornament, you can find many recipes. I cannot seem to find the one I used! Have fun and remember, it will be messy 😀
