Making Cereal Treats for Backyard Birds

Cereal Birdie Treats - repeat with the third one
You can easily make treats for the birds that visit your garden. String ring style cereal on cord or pipe cleaners and hang. Dye, sugar, and salt free varieties are a good choice. If you want to feed wild birds regularly, keep this type of treat down to once or twice a week and offer seed or suet the rest of the time.

One of my father's favourite things to do is feed the animals that visit him in his garden daily. Unfortunately, buying seed and food for them all the time is costly and not so convenient. Many kitchen scraps are perfectly suitable to feed the birds with. Sugar-free cereal, even the stale ones, work perfectly to supplement their diets. Oats are great, too! Here is how to make the birds some treats that are easy to snack from, made from your leftover cereal.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 3-ringed treat

I love helping the critters eat. Today, this is the best craft to do with the kids. You don't need but two or three items and you are set.
