Bird Feeders

Bird Feeders and Bird Cakes

6th class made bird feeders and bird cakes.

For the bird cakes, we cut a hole in a yogurt pot and put string through it.

Next we tied a lollipop stick to the string, to act as a perch.

We mixed melted lard with breadcrumbs, raisins and seeds and put the mixture in the pot and put it in the fridge to harden.

When the lard had hardened and set, we took it out of the pot and hung it up.

For the bird feeders we cut holes in a bottle and inserted chopsticks into the holes to act as the perches.

Next we made slightly larger holes for feeding holes. We used a funnel for filling it with seeds.

Next, we put the lid on the bottles and hung them up with string.
