Bird Pudding

The trees are looking bare and the weather is wet and cold, it was time to think about making bird pudding for the hungry birds.

I asked who would like to help me and I soon had lots of willing helpers. 

The children chopped our left over fruit and mixed the bird seed and peanut butter in the bowl.

We started mixing with the spoons and before long we were exploring it with our hands,  then the yummy fruit and peanut butter smells began to fill the air.  Yum this looked good enough to eat.

We added some silverbeet at the last minute, as those cheeky birds had been eating all our plants in the garden, so we added some greens.

We moulded the mixture into balls and then found some recycled netting to make up the holders to hang them in the trees.

We will watch with interest now to see if the birds come to eat our delicious bird pudding.

We are wondering what sort of birds will eat our tasty bird pudding?
