How to make your own

bird food "fat cakes"

- great craft idea for kids!

At Raising Kids Naturally we love nature. Nature provides for us, and we have to unite to look after it.
Here we have a great craft idea that the kids will not only love doing with you, but that they'll be rewarded with as they see birdies eating from them!
For these fat cakes you can use all kinds of kitchen scraps - such as leftover oatmeal, raisins, cheese scraps and bread bits. Perfect!
