Hi Fiona
I am not sure, but it looks as if you say small packet of gelatin

I used toilet paper rolls slathered with peanut butter and firmly pressed to n bird seed. And, hung with jute string

Have made similar feeders with open pine cones, hand made wire hook attached to top of cone. Then a mixture of peanut butter and birdseed pushed into openings. Then a quick roll in birdseed and hang it outside next day.
A very tactile and pleasing activity. Birds loved it.

Hi Wendy, I am so glad this activity worked for you. Your adaptation was very clever!

We did a similar project using large tree cones with a loop of string attached at the top, a mixture of peanut butter and lard that the clients jammed into the cones with plastic knives. Then they rolled them in wild bird seed mix, and placed in the freezer overnight. We put them outside the window in December but are finding more birds on them now in March and April! They are so successful that the clients want to make more and sell them next December with our poinsetta sale. I really appreciate Golden Carers site for lots of games and ideas. Thanks!
