Making Bird Feeders

Today, the Eco Warriors from year 5 discovered how to make bird feeders.

If you would like to try this at home, here are the instructions:

What you need:


  1. Pierce the bottom of the yoghurt pot to make a small whole and thread a piece of string through.
  2. Tie a knot in the string inside of the yoghurt pot (so that you can hang it on trees).
  3. Make sure the lard is at room temperature, add the ingredients together and mix well (it will feel very greasy).
  4. Spoon the mixture into yoghurt pots.
  5. Put in the fridge to chill for about two hours.
