A Family Affair
Who says that feeding the birds cannot be a fun event! Why not involve the entire family when enjoying bird feeding and bird watching. When creating your own homemade suet cakes, you can involve the kids and grand-kids. Letting your kids choose the recipe and or ingredients to add to the You Do It Suet® can be part of the fun!
After pouring off the excess grease from cooking ground beef, bacon or turkey into a You Do It Suet® mold, let your kids choose which ingredients to add. They can then add spoonfuls of tasty treats to the grease, then mix with a spoon. Once mixed thoroughly, place the You Do It Suet® mold in the fridge or freezer to harden.
Once hardened, ask your kids to pop out the homemade suet cake, and place in a standard suet cage feeder. Then place in your backyard, where you can view the birds feasting from your house or deck. Let the bird watching and feeding begin!
To add another element of fun to bird feeding and watching, visit your local library and get a book about birds. When you see a bird land on your suet cake and start munching away, look it up in the bird book and learn more about it. This is also a great way to learn what birds enjoy the suet cake mixture you just made.
