Kids Corner...

Owl Bird Feeder

You'll need:
  • Recycled milk or juice cartons
  • White paint
  • A permanent black marker
  • String or ribbon for hanging
How To:
  1. Apply two coats of white water based paint.
  2. After paint had dried we cut eyes from a piece of cereal box, applied with glue and then drew details with the black permanent marker.
  3. Make a hole in the top with a hole punch or something sharp, and hang!
  4. Cut out the wings and openings with a craft knife or scissors, an initial step that I would recommend doing for younger children.

Homemade Bird Seed


You'll need:

  • 1/3 Cup of Flour
  • 1/4 Cup of Water
  • 1 packet of Gelatin
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Corn Syrup
  • 2 Cups of Bird Seed
  • Mixing bowl and Spoon
  • Mat or Foil to put your seed on
  • Cookie sheet

How To:

  1. Put 2 cups of bird seed in a bowl
  2. Add 1/3 Cup of flour
  3. Next put in 1 1/2 Tablespoons of corn syrup
  4. Then add 1 pouch of gelatin
  5. Last add your 1/4 of water

Now mix well until all your ingredients are incorporated nicely and it looks something like this:

Now it's time to bake the mixture! Put it in the oven at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes. You will know it is done when it is hard and looks bird friendly!
