Let´s not forget about the birds this time of the year. Why not make them a good snack, so the birds can have a festive season as well? Share some love…
What I did was: I melted some coconut fat and let it cool down for a few minutes in cold water. Then I blended it with different kinds of birdseeds. When the fat began to get harden again, I made hearts using heart-shaped gingerbread shapes. To make a hole for the twine, I used a match ( use whatever you have that make a hole, so you can hang it up…)
It seems like the birds liked the “Christmas snack” very well, because a few hours after I hang it up it was all gone… Greedy birds! *smile*
This is probably a nice activity you can do with your children…. Just be careful with the hot coconut fat – make sure to wait until it´s cooled down before you blend in the birdseeds, otherwise it will squirt!
