A Project for the Birds

Today we made suet for our poor, cold songbirds. I knew it would be messy, but hey, that’s what it’s all about, right? It was super easy. You simply mix lard with bird seed, ball it up, and drop it into a net sack – the kind fruit comes in.

The boys had a blast. I’m pretty sure the 1 1/2 year old ate some of it, but it can’t be too bad for him I figure. They were a hot mess afterward, so be prepared to dunk them in a warm bath with lots of soap.

The best part is going to be watching the birds come in to eat our little project.
