Nature Craft: DIY Bird Cookies

Apr 5, 2018

Daisy loves to make nature crafts, and here is how to make her bird cookies! Click on the image below for a printable PDF of this project, or scroll down for the instructions.

Printable instructions to make Daisy's bird cookies.

Step 1

Collect some cookie cutters from your kitchen. Choose fun shapes like stars and hearts.

Step 2

Mix about 2 cups of birdseed and unflavoured gelatin with a cup of warm water in a large mixing bowl. Stir it all with a spoon. Place your cookie cutters on a flat surface and fill them with the birdseed mixture. Use your hand to press it down to form your cookie. Use a pencil to make a hole in each cookie so you can hang them up once they’re dry.

Step 3

Let your cookies dry completely and then push them out of the cookie cutter. Tie some string through the hole. Now hang your creation on a branch for your bird friends to enjoy!

Remember there is no right or wrong way to make a nature craft, so have fun!
