“Good project on a cold Winter afternoon ~ How to Make A Treat for your Squirrel Friends.
We all have this deep-rooted fascination with the wild. It’s as simple as feeding squirrels and pigeons on a park bench for some people.
SQUIRREL COOKIES OR “NUT BALLS”…YUM! Another thing you can do is make “squirrel cookies”. They’re filling for the squirrels. Bags of sunflower seed, peanuts, and corn, hazelnut, pecan, or walnut pieces. Soft, plain suet and peanut butter to shape balls.
Roll the dough into small balls about the size of a walnut, or into a cookie form. Roll into some nuts or sunflower seeds. Freeze well . Squirrels won’t eat it if it’s mushy.
Squirrels can often survive quite well on their own if we have created an ecologically diverse yet well-balanced environment for them to live in. By putting nuts outside in the winter months can be a life saver to some creatures. Squirrels will also eat apples.
Tie and hang Squirrel Cookies from tree branches and places squirrels can reach easily.
