I am not above bribery at all...I have used it for years as a mothering tool ;)
I found a recipe for these cute birdseed ornaments from here.
I'm generally not a very crafty person. But I do like to do some craft time with my boys.
I picked up some heart-shaped cookie cutters at the grocery, most everything else we had in the pantry.
Here is how we made them.
Bird Seed Ornaments
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. water
1 envelope unflavored jello
3 Tbs. corn syrup
4 c. bird seed
Mix everything together until evenly coated. Press into muffin tins or cute cookie cutters. Put plastic straws in the top to form a whole for the ribbon to go through.
Let them set for 3-4 hours
Carefully remove them from their molds.
String a pretty ribbon through and hang into the trees in your yard.
Congratulate yourself for being so arty-crafty and for being such a cool Mom. :)
