This is a fun craft to do with your 1.5+ year olds. It is definitely product based, but still a fun way to engage with your child and backyard nature.
- 2 cups bird seed,
- 1 cup boiling water
- 2 T powdered gelatin
- Plastic eggs
- Yarn and large needle for hanging
Mix together gelatin and boiling water. Let it set for a few minutes, then stir in bird seed. Fill your plastic eggs with the mixture and pop them in the fridge for a few hours. Carefully take them out of the egg molds and string them some loops with a needle and thread. Have your little helper decide where they should be hung!
You can double or triple this recipe if you want to fill lots of eggs.
