A Little Love for Valentine's Day

This is a fun way to celebrate by making a grain heart for birds and squirrels. It's a thoughtful way to show a little love.


3 cups birdseed
2 – 1/4 ounce unflavored gelatin packet
heart-shaped cookie cutters or candy molds

Sprinkle two packages of gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water. Let it sit a couple of minutes until gelatin has absorbed the water. Heat 1 3/4 cups water in a pan, then add in the gelatin mixture. Stir until dissolved. Stir in 3 cups birdseed.
Allow mixture to cool until gelatin is thick and coats all the birdseed.

Work twine into the heart and hang it for the birds to enjoy!
