Give Birds a Feast with This Suet Feeder
If your family cooks bacon or other meats, sometimes you end up with solid fat leftovers called suet. This project re-uses some cooking leftovers to make a gourmet treat for your local birds. It's a fun way to help your child gain scientific practice by identifying and categorizing our feathered friends. Once your bird-feeder is finished, get cozy by the window and find out which birds live in your neighborhood! Warning: use this birdfeeder in winter when temperatures do not rise above 50°, otherwise your “glop” may melt and it won’t be so fun!
