Activity: Bird Seed Play Dough
Play dough is always a favorite among kids and who could imagine that there were so many ways to create your own play dough right at home. For some sculpting fun, put together a batch of this easy to make dough that will be appreciated by your backyard bird friends.
What you will need:
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
Mix birdseed, flour and salt with enough water to make a play dough texture. Kids should play with their dough somewhere cool or in the shade so the mixture doesn’t harden too soon. Once the dough hardens so it’s no longer fun to play with, leave it in a tree or elsewhere in your yard so the birds can have a snack!
