Bird Feeders gone wrong

Scroll down to content

We made bird feeders! The idea was nice – bird seed mixed and hardened with gelatin – but in theory, it was a poor design. The night after we made the feeders, it rained very heavily, and wouldn’t you know most of the feeders were down by the afternoon! The hardened gelatin mixture just isn’t strong enough to withstand the wind.  I guess we’ll have to invest a few more dollars for a bona fide feeder that will last. Still, it was a fun activity. Lesson learned. Oh, we also made pine cone bird feeders (covered with peanut butter and birdseed), but those didn’t last long either. 😦  However, I do have some new ideas for homemade Christmas ornaments when the time comes!
