Winter is the most challenging season for our feathery friends because their natural food sources have dwindled - so why not give your local birds a feast to help them through the colder months?

Check out our bird feeder video guide, created by our Edible Playgrounds team. It's a truly rewarding activity as you watch your bird neighbours enjoy your creation!

You'll need:

  • Assorted bird seeds
  • Trex (a vegetable fat)
  • A mixing bowl
  • Gloves
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pine cones

Watch the video above to learn the method and see what birds our feeder attracted. And if you feel inspired - click here for another type of DIY bird feeder you can make at home.
