We read the book Animals in Winter from the Let's Read and Find Out Science series today. Then we mixed up a batch of birdseed cakes using this recipe. We froze a few for later use as we don't want to abandon our birds mid season.
We used muffin tins as our molds.
We placed pieces of straws in the cakes until they dried so that we would have a hole to string them later. This evening, we're going to decorate a little tree in our backyard with the birdseed cakes and also add bits of lint and fabric scraps for use in their nests.
