Spring Bird Feeder Craft

Make your Spring a little more fun with this easy and fun craft. “Hide” eggs around your yard for the birds! Put them in trees, too! They are easy to make and use only 3 ingredients and some plastic, fillable eggs.

Ingredients/Supplies

1 box unflavored gelatin

10 cups bird seed

Cooking spray

36 Plastic, fillable eggs

1. Prepare the gelatin as directed on the box or package.

2. Mix in the premeasured bird seed. (It is easier to do 1/2 at a time: half the gelatin and half the bird seed.)

3. Open the plastic eggs and lightly coat interior of each half with cooking spray.

4. Pack both halves of each egg with bird seed mixture and close egg to push together.

5. Place all eggs in large glass bowl (to protect gelatin from leaking through seam in eggs).

6. Refrigerate overnight.

7. Open eggs and hide them around your yard. Watch for the birds to find them!
