Not a kebab made of birds! A kebab for the birds in your garden to eat, and one that's not toxic to your dogs and cats either.

This kebab is very much like our other kebab, but without the raisins, and with a few cute dogs thrown in.

It's the perfect way to get ready for the Big Garden Birdwatch: cheap and fun to make. Oh and you can sign up for the Big Garden Birdwatch for free here!

All you'll need to make this is:

  • Apples
  • Bread
  • Hard cheese
    (cut all of the above into cube-sized pieces)
  • Floral wire
  • String

1. Taking floral wire, thread through chunks of cheese and apples leaving about 8cm at either end.

2. Bend the wire to form a circle, holding the ends together.

3. Tie a loop of string on the wire circle.

4. Hang your scrumptious kebab up for the birds to feast on.

5. But don't worry if your pets get hold of it...
