Give your feathered friends a little love this winter with a yummy birdseed ornament. The kids will love watching the birds gobble it up, so hang this sweet tweet from a branch outside the kitchen window.

Best for kids age: 3 and up
What you’ll need: ¾ cup birdseed, 1 small packet of Knox gelatin, string or raffia, heart-shaped mold

How to make it: Dissolve the gelatin in a ¼ cup of water and bring to a simmer, stirring until dissolved. Let cool slightly. Add the birdseed and mix well. Spoon the seeds in to the mold until it’s half full and then pack it down firmly. Lay a piece of string on the seed and fill it the rest of the way. Let it dry for a few days, pop out of the mold and hang outside for the birds to enjoy.
