Daddy Brad: Wouldn't it be awesome if you could eat your house? Well, if you're a bird and you live in my backyard you can! Stick around. The kids and I are going to make an edible birdhouse.
This episode of Quality Time is brought to you by Baby Bjorn. The finest baby gear around, Baby Bjorn.
My kids have been asking me to build a birdhouse for the backyard for a long time but only bad things happen when I get out the skill saw. I'm not very handy so I figured who could lose a finger dealing with peanut butter and paper plates? We're going to make an edible birdhouse. It's very easy and the kids can do most of the work.
Here's what you're going to need: bird seed, a large mixing bowl, a half cup of flour, two tablespoons of corn meal, scissors, twine or some thin wire, a paper plate, a hole punch, ice cream cone, half pint milk carton, elementary school glue, raisins, a cup of peanut butter, some nuts any kind is fine, and graham crackers.
Take your paper plate and put three holes in the sides so they form a triangle. Glue the milk carton onto the paper plate. Leave it a little off center so there's room to add your ice cream cone tree little lay on. Let the glue dry.
Take your peanut butter, corn meal and flour and mix it all together in a big bowl. This is going to be your mortar. Man this stuff is sticky. Add a dab of mortar to the back of the graham crackers and put them on the milk carton.
Take two graham crackers and put them together like this with your mortar to make your peaked roof and then put that on your milk carton.
Take your mortar mixture and frost the outside of the graham crackers then decorate it with raisins. Make doors and windows and dormers. It's creative, it's fancy! And to finish off take some nuts and birdseed and sprinkle it all over the house.
Final piece is to do your birdseed tree. Take your ice cream cone, frost it with mortar then sprinkle it with birdseed and nuts. Put a big glob on the plate and stick that black board down on there.
Now take your twine or wire, tie it to the plate and hang it up in a tree.
