Attract birds to your garden by making them a fantastic feast! A great way to use up leftover scraps and help the birds during the colder months.
Step 1: Put a knot into one end of your pipe cleaner/wire, approx 5cm from the end.
Step 2: Thread through some of your Cheerios, pushing them all the way to the knot.
Step 3: Thread through your raisins. If using chopped-up fruit bars, ask an adult to help you make a small hole in the centre with a pointed knife.
Step 4: Chop your cheese into cubes. With the help of an adult, make a hole in the centre with a pointed knife. Thread the cubes on.
Step 5: Now chop up your apple into chunks. Use a knife to make a central hole again. Thread a chunk on to your wire.
Step 6: Keep threading on a mixture of fruit, cheese and cereal. Leave about 5cm of wire clear at the end.
Step 7: Twist the two ends together to form a circle. No glue needed!
Step 8: Hang your feeder in a tree or bush, then sit back and watch the birds dine!
