Eco bird feeder

The bird feeder, which you and your child did with their own hands, will bring great pleasure. This is also a good tradition, which teaches the child to take care of our smaller brothers, and a wonderful creative activity. Milk bags, plastic bottles are not the best option for the feeder. We offer you eco-feeders that are easy to do and interesting. As a "building" material you will need: cardboard and ribbons (bake, satin narrow ribbon or just a rope). Food: seeds and grains (millet, sunflower seeds, oatmeal flakes, wheat and any others), crushed peas, berries (frozen cranberries, currants, mountain ash, viburnum perfectly suited), raisins, grated cheese, etc. It is not recommended to use rice or buckwheat: after getting into the bird's stomach, they swell up and cause pain to the birds. Also flour and capacity to make flour paste are needed.

Lay out us feed in flat containers.For convenience, the table is better covered with a napkin, paper, oilcloth, because in the process of making food troughs cereals, flakes crumble and scatter in different directions. Make blanks of ribbons-ropes about 50 cm long (so that the ribbons do not dissolve, you can carefully burn the ends over the fire).

Preparing a cardboard base: any figures (hearts, flowers, fish, etc.) not more than 10 cm high with a hole for a tape, for which you will then hang the eco-feeder on a tree. You can use bread instead of cardboard (it’s harder to cut something out of the ordinary, but the feeder will be 100 percent greener).

Now we are preparing flour paste. Pour the flour into a small container, pour it with cold water and mix thoroughly until creamy thickness (in that order and only with cold water, otherwise the homogeneous mass will not work).Then we put on the fire and cook, stirring constantly for a while. Control the thickness of the mixture (it should preserve the consistency of sour cream): it will thicken on the fire. We turn to the process of manufacturing eco-feeders. We apply flour paste on a cardboard figure, leaving holes for tapes free. The layer should be thick enough that the grains and flakes are a little drowned in it. We pour the food on this base itself, pressing it with your fingers. It all depends on the imagination of you and your child: different parts of the figures can be laid out in different color feeds, you can lay out a pattern, etc.

At once the figure should not be turned over. It is necessary to let it dry for about 20 minutes. After that, apply the paste on the reverse side and lay out the pattern. Now the billet should dry well, until the paste hardens. It remains to put holes in tape or rope and the eco-feeder is ready!
