How to make fat maggot bird food

Super simple bird food.

Your feathered friends will love these scrummy homemade treats.

  • Little brothers and sisters will have fun helping with this activity
  • Lots of birds will enjoy these treats – keep your eyes peeled for ground feeding birds like robins, blackbirds and sparrows
  • Make sure you keep feeding birds once you start – they rely on it and may go hungry without your help

This is messy fun, so make sure you wash your hands afterwards!
