Strawberry birds

Summer is the perfect time to be outside reconnecting with nature. No bush walk would be complete without seeing some birds, although not sure these ones are natives!



  • pineapple (melon/apple/pear)
  • strawberries
  • cream cheese (yoghurt/coconut cream)
  • blueberries (raisins)
  • mint (basil/coriander/parsley)


Step 1 Make a trunk for the tree from pineapple.

Step 2 Add some top branches.

Step 3 Use edible leaves to give the tree foliage.

Step 4 Cut strawberries in half to create the birds.

Step 5 Give them some nice ‘googly’ cream cheese eyes.

Step 6 Then use a slice of blueberry for each pupil.

Step 7 A triangle of strawberry can be placed under the eyes for the beaks.

Step 8 Then add some chopped leaves as grass under the tree to finish off.
