Kids who enjoy learning about birds they spot in the outdoors–in their backyards and beyond–will love this fun activity from Little Bigfoot’s new book Look at That Bird! by Karen DeWitz. Even though it’s normally a winter activity, birds enjoy Suet year-round and it’s perfect for the family to do together this weekend!
Here’s what you will need:
- 5 empty and clean half-gallon milk cartons or other square molds (see Note)
- 2 cups squishy fat (shortening, lard, or rendered fat)
- 1 cup crunchy nut or seed butter (I use peanut butter)
- 3½ cups birdseed
- 1 cup uncooked quick oats
