Eat Like a Bird Experiment

Eat like a bird in this fun experiment!

You need:
Gummy worms
and/or sunflower seeds
Butter knife

1)  Attempt to pick-up seeds or gummy worms with a butter knife (Make sure to supervise -- this may be an unsafe idea for some children!  You could substitute a craft stick).

2)  Pretend the clothespin is a "beak" and pick-up gummy worms and/or seeds.  Discuss which is easier:  Using a "knife" beak or "clothespin" beak?  Why?

Enjoy a snack.  We attempted to break open the sunflower seeds with the clothespin!
