Eco-friendly bird feeder

The bird feeder, which you and your child did with their own hands, will bring great pleasure. This is a good tradition that teaches a child to take care of our smaller brothers, and a wonderful creative activity.
Packages of milk, plastic bottles - not the best option for the trough. We offer you an eco-feeders that make it easy and interesting.
As a "construction" material you will need: cardboard and ribbons (inlay, satin narrow ribbon or just a rope).
Feeds: seeds and grains (millet, sunflower seeds, oatmeal, wheat and any other flakes), crushed peas, berries (frozen cranberries, currants, mountain ash, viburnum perfectly suit), raisins, grated cheese, etc. It is not recommended to use rice or buckwheat: after they enter the bird's stomach, they swell and cause pain to the birds.
More will be needed flour and capacity for the preparation of flour paste.

Spread our table food in flat containers. For convenience, the table is better covered with a napkin, paper, oilcloth, becausein the process of making food troughs, cereals, flakes are scattered 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).

We prepare the basis of cardboard: any figures (hearts, flowers, fish, etc.) not more than 10 cm high with a hole for the tape, for which then you will hang the eco-feeder on the tree. Instead of cardboard, you can use bread (it is more difficult to cut something unusual, but the feeder will be 100 percent eco-friendly).

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 so that the grains and flakes are slightly buried in it.
We pour the food itself on this base, pressing it slightly with our 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.

Do not turn the figure at once. 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 is cured.
It remains to fit into the holes of tape or rope and eco-feeder is ready!
