Don't you just love when your friends come over for a picnic? It's nice to make them a special treat.
Baking cookies for her friend Scout got Daisy thinking of all the backyard creatures who also come to visit. This inspired her to make BIRD COOKIES.
“They’ll be ...
Chirp chirp happy,
Chirp chirp healthy,
Chirp chirp fed well too.
And while they’re ...
Chirp chirp learning,
Chirp chirp growing,
Chirp chirp flying soon.”

MAKE A BIRD COOKIE WITH DAISY!
Collect some cookie cutters from your kitchen. Choose fun shapes like stars and hearts.
Mix about 2 cups of birdseed and unflavoured gelatin with a cup of warm water in a large mixing bowl. Stir it all with a spoon. Place your cookie cutters on a flat surface and fill them with the birdseed mixture. Use your hand to press it down to form your cookie. Use a pencil to make a hole in each cookie so you can hang them up once they’re dry.
Let your cookies dry completely and then push them out of the cookie cutter. Tie some string through the hole. Now hang your creation on a branch for your bird friends to enjoy!
Remember there is no right or wrong way to make a nature craft, so have fun!
