As part of our topic about British Birds linked to the RSPB Bird Watching campaign, we thought about what birds need at this time of year. We know that they need enough food to keep themselves warm and well during the colder winter months and lard is a good food source to do this. We also added in some dried fruit too. We had great fun getting our hands all sticky as we mixed the lard with the fruit before pushing it into the gaps between the sections of the pine cones. An added bonus of mixing with lard was that we had softer hands! We took them pine cone bird feeders home to hang in our own gardens.
