Happy Australia Day! Late in the afternoon while everyone else was resting Caspar and I entered the kitchen to make a Bird Seed Garland. He had a blast making this.
We used this recipe I found by following a couple of links. It's a good recipe because it uses basic ingredients. We only used half the recipe because we didn't need to make so much. It looked so good Caspar wanted to eat it!
We pressed the mixture into small muffin tins and to speed up the drying process placed them in a warm oven. We strung them onto embroidery thread and positioned in the tree.
This is our favourite bird watching tree. It's currently full of fruit so the birds are not going hungry. I'll remember this recipe for winter. It'll look great when the tree is bare.
Please let me know if you have an alternative recipe to share. We'd love to experiment next time.
Oh - I recently came across this blog and thought you might like it too.
