We’ve been learning a lot about birds and we wanted to see if we could get more birds to come into our garden. We decided to make some food they might like. We made fruit sticks and seed lollies. Here’s how we did it!
First we cut some fruit into pieces. Then we threaded it on sticks. We chose apples, bananas and blueberries.
Here’s my finished fruit stick!
Then we made some seed lollies to hang up. We mixed seeds with some dried fruit and lard and put them into cups with a lolly stick in them. Then we put them in the fridge to set.
Then we took them out and hung them up in the garden.
Our back bedroom window looks out on the garden so we went upstairs with our bird spotting book and our binoculars to see if any birds came to visit!
So far we have seen blackbirds, blue-tits, great-tits, robins, pigeons, sparrows and some others we haven’t worked out yet!
