Choose one person to hide. When someone finds the hiding person, he or she squeezes into the hiding place too. The last person to find the group is the next person to hide.

Mix 1/4 cup water and one .25-oz (7-g) envelope of unflavored gelatin in a pot and simmer it until the gelatin dissolves.
Let the gelatin cool. Then mix in 3/4 cup birdseed.
Set cookie cutters on a piece of waxed paper. Spoon the birdseed mixture into the cookie cutters and press it down with a piece of waxed paper.

Let the shapes harden overnight. Tie string through each hole. Hang the feeders outside near a branch the birds can sit on, and watch the birds enjoy them!
