Making bird feeders

At Cubs we are currently working towards the naturalist badge. This week we spent some time looking at different birds, wild flowers and trees and we also made bird feeders.

We tied a piece of string around a small stick and then threaded it through a hole in the bottom of a yoghurt pot, leaving the stick inside the cup. We then mixed lard and birdseed together making a very sticky mess.

We then put the mix into yoghurt pot and told the Cubs to take them home and put them in the fridge overnight and then they can be hung in the garden for the birds. The Cubs thoroughly enjoyed making them and hopefully they will encourage lots of birds into their gardens.
