What you need:
- Half a bagel
- Peanut butter or honey
- Bird seed
You will need to help your child cut a bagel in half. After that, get them to spread peanut butter or honey evenly on one side of the bagel.
Then, pour bird seed on top of the peanut butter/honey so it sticks and covers the spread.
Cut a piece of string, long enough to be tied around the hole of the bagel and tie a knot in the top.
Once you have done this, all that’s left to do is to find a tree outside to hang it on.
Watch the birds fly in to peck at the yummy treat you have made for them!
Top tip – While making the bird feeder with your children, it’s a nice idea to get a bird book, look at the pictures and talk about the types of birds you might see in your garden.
