Share a treat with feathered friends in your own backyard and keep them coming back. Make these fun birdseed cookies, then hang them on a tree viewable from a window in your home. Your kids will have fun choosing which cookie cutters to use and pressing birdseed into the dough. Or visit our For the Birds Pinterest board for more ideas.
Talk to your child:
Why do you think it's important to care for animals?
What birds come eat from our birdseed cookies? What do you know about the different kinds of birds?
